Description


Paul L autaud was both one of the oddest characters in French literature and, as a staff member of the review Mercure de France, at the centre of Parisian literary life for over half a century. First published in 1974, this book represents the first full length biography of L autaud in any language. The author recreates the world of a man who, once regarded as a mere eccentric, is now recognised as a significant figure in contemporary literature. It traces L autaud's intimate friendships with many famous writers of the time and gives a lively panorama of the French literary scene and its vivid characters.
