[2] Angelique Chrisafis, "Bonjour Françoise: France in thrall to Sagan", The Guardian, 31 May 2008: "With her first payment she bought a Jaguar, setting the tone for a 'female playboy' lifestyle which would involve every luxury make of racing car, gambling and a bisexual love life in which she seduced a long list of glamorous women, including the film star Ava Gardner." Also, Matthew Campbell, "Lesbian love tangle stirs Paris literati", Sunday Times, 16 December 2007: "The relationship between Annick Geille, a former editor of French Playboy, and the wayward, waif-like Sagan was an open secret in Paris and the first detailed account of it has stirred nostalgia among literati for a time when French writers were feted worldwide and seemed much more colourful."
