Author Info
Andre Gide
Gide came from a mixed Catholic/Protestant, northern/southern background. A man who was intensely curious about virtually everything, he became one of the finest critical minds of the 20th century. The concept of inqui?tude, or restlessness, pervaded all his work, and it was said of him that he doubted everything but himself. His work, taken as a whole, is a vast autobiography, a confession of what he considered to be his true nature. Bisexual, he was married for 43 years in an unconsummated union with his cousin Madeleine; he had one child--a daughter--by his mistress. Gide won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1947.
From the Publisher
Annotation Edouard Molinier is a writer working on a novel called THE COUNTERFEITERS. In it, a brash young man named Bernard becomes Edouard's secretary. During the course of the book, Bernard and his friend Olivier, pals from college, undergo a psychosexual education: Olivier emerges as a homosexual, and Bernard as a primarily gay man who idolizes women but cannot become involved with them. Unlike Gide's other novels, THE COUNTERFEITERS is not a r?cit but a work that he actually called a novel, and it is widely considered to be his masterpiece. It was inspired by a newspaper story about a ring of counterfeiters that included several children.
Editors Note A young artist pursues a search for knowledge through the treatment of homosexuality and the collapse of morality in middle class France.
