"Dangerous, charming, and funny, this elegant miniature rediscovery will delight even brilliant minds."—Simon Van Booy

André Maurois' novella, published in the same year as Margaret Mead's Coming of Age in Samoa, is about a couple who become shipwrecked on an uncharted South Seas Island and discover a race of literary zealots for whom every subject and feeling needs to be expressed as a form of literary art. As explained by Alberto Manguel, "An Articole will publish not only his Intimate Journal, but also his Journal of My Intimate Journal; and his wife will publish My Husband's Journal of His Intimate Journal."

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Maurois is wonderfully witty about the physical debilitation that results from having one's substance fed upon for the sake of illusory art."—Wall Street Journal
