From the Publisher:
A young artist pursues a search for knowledge through the treatment of homosexuality and the collapse of morality in middle class France.
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.
