Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"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's Coming 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 his Intimate Journal, but also his Journal of My Intimate Journal; and his wife will publish My Husband's Journal of His Intimate Journal."

Synopsis:

A couple becomes shipwrecked on an island of literary zealots, a place where every subject/feeling deserves expression. Sound familiar?
