Edmond François Valentin About (1828 – 1885) was a French novelist, publicist and journalist. He made his name as an entertaining anti-clerical writer. The satirical The King of the Mountains is the best-known of his novels. In Greece, About had noticed that there was a curious understanding between the brigands and police: brigandage was becoming almost a safe and respectable industry. About pushed this idea to invent the story of a brigand chief who converts his business into a registered joint-stock company.
