About Author

Max O'Rell

Leon Paul Blouet, a French author and journalist, used the pen name Max O'Rell. Max O'Rell was born Leon Pierre Blouet on March 3, 1847, in Avranches, a little hamlet near the Abbey of Mont St Michel in Normandy on the border with Brittany. He later preferred the name Leon Paul Blouet. His paternal grandfather, Jean-François Blouet, was the jail warden at Mont St Michel from 1806 to 1818. At the age of twelve, he relocated to Paris and attended the conservatoire and college before earning a B.A. and a BSc from the Sorbonne in 1865 and 1866, respectively. With few chances in France, Blouet chose to become a journalist and departed for London in 1872. In 1874, he was appointed senior master of French at the prestigious St Paul's School for Boys in London. Later that year, he married Mary Bartlett in Devon. Their daughter, Léonie, was born in 1875. Blouet began working on a book of sketches about England in the early 1880s, most likely influenced by Hippolyte Taine's Notes sur l'Angleterre. Calmann-Lévy published John Bull et son île in Paris in 1883 under the pseudonym Max O'Rell, which he used to maintain the dignity of his teaching position.
