About this audiobook

Cette farce satirique, revendiquée comme telle par l'auteur offre un récit de ton ironique et critique qui fera scandale à sa parution en 1914. Il sera question de petites vies rangées happées dans un tourbillon d'évènements mineurs en apparence où les petites concessions vont remplacées de solides croyances pour aboutir au désordre. L'auteur n'hésite pas à égratigner le vernis de respectabilités établies pour y introduire complots et manigances sous le noble prétexte de sauver la papauté. André Gide reçoit le Prix Nobel de littérature en 1947.

Andre Gide

André Gide (1869 - 1951) was a French author described by The New York Times as, “French’s greatest contemporary man of letters.” Gide was a prolific writer with over fifty books published in his sixty-year career with his notable books including The Notebooks of André Walker (1891), The Immoralist (1902), The Pastoral Symphony (1919), The Counterfeiters (1925) and The Journals of André Gide (1950). He was also known for his openness surrounding his sexuality: a self-proclaimed pederast, Gide espoused the philosophy of completely owning one’s sexual nature without compromising one’s personal values which is made evident in almost all of his autobiographical works. At a time when it was not common for authors to openly address homosexual themes or include homosexual characters, Gide strove to challenge convention and portray his life, and the life of gay people, as authentically as possible.
