The Letters: 1830-57 v. 1

The Letters: 1830-57 v. 1

A non fiction book by

Edited by Alphonse Jacob Translated from the French by Francis Steegmuller and Barbara Bray

The Paris theater world, the hot literary gossip, scenes of domestic life, and the inner workings of two of France's most notorious free spirits.

Generally reckoned to be one of the most fascinating correspondences of the last century, this exchange of letters from 1863 to 1876 is unique in the history of French literature. Never have two great writers set down their ideas so candidly and over so long a period of time on the most varied topics, including the genesis of their own writings. The elements of this correspondence have been available for over a century, but never in a form accessible to the general reader. For this edition, Alphonse Jacob has re-created the atmosphere in which the letters were written and has revived this masterpiece by two of France's greatest novelists: their intimate correspondence.

Flaubert-Sand: A Correspondence is among the first of a new list of nonfiction paperbacks published as Harvill Press Editions.
