Catherine Millet is a French writer, curator, and founder and editor of the prestigious magazine art press, which focuses on modern and contemporary art. She is also the author of eight books of art criticism, including Yves Klein, Le Critique d'art s'expose, and L'Art contemporain en France.

Born in Bois-Colombes, France, she is best known as the author of the 2002 memoir The Sexual Life of Catherine M.; the book details her sexual history, from childhood masturbation to an adult fascination with group sex. The book was reviewed by Edmund White as "the most explicit book about sex ever written by a woman".

In 2008 she published a sequel of sorts called Jour de Souffrance, translated into English in 2009 as Jealousy: The Other Life of Catherine M. In French, she has also written about Dali’s sexual life and contributed to Marie-Dominique Montel and Christopher Jones’ documentary Le Cinéma selon Dali on Dali’s theories about film.
