Jean Genet (December 19, 1910 – April 15, 1986) was a prominent and controversial French novelist, playwright, poet, essayist, and political activist. Genet’s mother was a prostitute who raised him for a year before giving him up for adoption. In and out of prison for much of his early life, he was a vagabond, petty criminal, and prostitute – experiences that informed much of his writing. His major works include the novels Querelle of Brest, The Thief’s Journal and Our Lady of the Flowers, and the plays The Blacks, The Maids and The Screens.
