Solid hardcover. ; Translation of 1937 Nobel laureate Martin du Gard's early novel, Jean Barois. "A drama of ideas, it presents the old and ever-new story of a young man outgrowing his inherited beliefs and groping for new convictions. At the turn of the century, this revolt took the form of flight from the Church into the new faith offered by science; and this novel, in personal terms, conveys the ferment of a whole generation in France. The Dreyfus case, which was a rallying point for the avant-garde of the time, is an important episode." ; 365 pages.
