In 1906, Félix Fénéon wrote the anonymous column “Nouvelles en trois lignes” (News in Three Lines) for the Parisian newspaper Le Matin. Distilling true stories into a few lines, Fénéon reported sensational news, from murders and suicides to political protests and workers’ demonstrations. Fénéon's sardonic humor and wit create a picture of violence, scandal, and unrest in early-20th-century France.
