about this book

Published in 1926 when Gide was fifty-seven, this book shocked many by its honest treatment of homosexuality and the collapse of morality in the French middle-class. Its three themes, dealing with the problems of morals, literary artists, and society, are strikingly illuminated as the protagonist, a young artist pursues a search for knowledge in the relationships of his own adolescent relatives. Included in this edition is Gide's journal, the daybook he kept during the writing of The Counterfeiters, which provides a unique view into the mind of a great novelist at work.
