France’s great Catholic author and Nobel Prize winner unfolds his thoughts on a variety of topics in a series of letters written to such men as Albert Camus, Jean Cocteau, Pierre Schaeffer and Jacques Riviere. Readers of Proust’s Way, Men I Hold Great and The Stumbling Block will find intense interest in Mauriac’s reflections on the death of Georges Bernanos, the Claudel-Gide correspondence and the Routier youth movement.
