Germaine Beaumont


French journalist and novelist influenced by Colette and Virginia Woolf. Germaine’s mother, Annie de Pène (a writer herself) left husband and children behind to embark on writing and literature. This had a profound effect on 8 year old Germaine, who tried ‘to understand’ the rest of her life. After her studies in Versailles, Germaine Beaumont exiles to England from 1908 till 1915. Back in France, she is for some years the secretary of Colette, close friend of her mother. Colette becomes her mentor or as they call it: her spiritual mother and close friend too. Beaumont translated Virginia Woolf’s: A Writer’s Diary, her debut as a writer began in 1930 with ‘Piège’. She belonged to the feminist intellectuals of her time.
