ADG (initials of the pseudonym Alain Dreux-Gallou), whose real name is Alain Fournier dit Camille , is a French writer and journalist born on December 19 , 1947 in Tours and died on November 1 , 2004 in Paris, as a result of a Cancer.

Biography

ADG was for ten years one of the most popular authors in the Série noire collection published by the Gallimard publishing house . He was known to have expressed a right-wing, and even far-right sensibility (towards which he grew closer when he became the main animator of the National Front in New Caledonia). That position singled him out within the wave of the French neo - polar of the 1970s that was dominated by far-left authors or anarchists such as the other great figure of the Série noire of the 70s, Jean-Patrick Manchette .
