Japrisot, Sébastien
(Jean-Baptiste Rossi / July 5, 1931, Marseille, Bouches-du-Rhône, France - March 4, 2003, Vichy, Allier, France)
   Of Italian descent, he was educated by the Jesuits and completed his studies at the Sorbonne Uni­versity. In 1950, when he was only eighteen years old, he published a critically acclaimed first novel, Les Mal-Partis (Robert Laffont). Three years later, he translated into French J. D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye. In the 1950s, he earned his living as an advertising chief for two Parisian agencies. In 1960, he met producer Pierre Braunberger, who financed his three shorts. Under the pseudonym of Sébastien Japrisot (an anagram of his name), he published two detective novels written in fifteen days. They were immediately adapted by himself and brought to the screen by André Cayatte (1965 Piège pour Cendril-lon / Non sono un'assassino / UK and USA: A Trap for Cinderella, France / Italy) and Costa-Gavras (1965 Compartiment Tueurs / UK: The Sleeping Car Murder / USA: The Sleeping Car Murders).
