The White Notebook
André Gide’s first published work reveals the early brilliance and philosophical conflicts of a towering figure in French literature
Nobel Prize–winning writer André Gide lays bare his adolescent psyche in this early work of fiction, first conceived and published as part of his novel The Notebooks of André Walter, completed when he was just twenty years old. This profoundly personal work draws heavily on his own religious upbringing and private journals to tell the story of a young man who, like the author, pines for his forbidden love, cousin Emmanuelle.
This unique fictional self-portrait of Gide as a young man presents the passions and conflicts, temptations and anguish he would explore in maturity
