10 Writers Who Died Too Soon
1. Radiguet Raymond
Radiguet Raymond was a French writer who published two famous novels. The Devil in the Flesh (Le Diable au Corps) depicts a story of a married young woman who has an extra-marital affair with 16 years old boy, while her husband fought in the Great War.
