About the Author

Gaston Leroux is best known as the creator of the 1911 novel, The Phantom of the Opera, about a masked figure who haunts the hidden parts of the Paris Opera House. The novel appeared first in serial installments a year before publication, ultimately grew into several movie versions, and later mostrar mais became an Tony Award-winning Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. Leroux was born in Paris in 1868. The only child of financially well-off parents, he moved easily into a clerk job in a law office. While working there, he wrote essays and short stories, many of which were accepted by publishers. This fired his enthusiasm, and he became a full-time reporter/writer in 1890. Law experience covering famous cases and theater reviews fueled his writing career, but it was his news reporter job that took him around the world at the turn of the century, providing details for his novels. Leroux wrote several mystery and fantasy novels, including the well-received The Mystery of the Yellow Room (1907) and The Man Who Came Back from the Dead (1912). Leroux also helped pioneer the character of the amateur detective who solves crime, so commonly seen today in movies and television. Gaston Leroux continued to write until his death on April 16, 1927. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Prestes a morrer, o pai da jovem Christine Daaé, um músico famoso, promete à filha que um anjo da música vai protegê-la e guiá-la até que se torne uma grande cantora. Criada nos bastidores da Ópera de Paris — por onde correm histórias lendárias sobre um fantasma que aterroriza atores e funcionários —, Christine de fato começa a ouvir uma voz que a ensina a cantar como uma estrela. A temida figura, sombria e deformada, acaba se rendendo aos encantos da jovem e nutrindo por ela uma intensa paixão. No entanto, quando Raoul, visconde de Chagny, aparece na Ópera para assistir a uma performance arrebatadora de sua amiga de infância, os sentimentos do Fantasma se convertem em ciúme, fúria e terror — e ninguém mais está a salvo nos labirínticos corredores do teatro. Uma das histórias mais fantásticas de todos os tempos, "O Fantasma da Ópera" continua a arrepiar os leitores mais de um século depois de seu lançamento, em uma narrativa cheia de mistério, desejo e escuridão.… (mais)
