Description

"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'sComing 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 hisIntimate Journal, but also hisJournal of My Intimate Journal; and his wife will publishMy Husband's Journal of His Intimate Journal."
