Description
At a provincial school in 1890s France, 15-year-old François Seurel's life is changed by the arrival of Augustin Meaulnes, a dashing and mysterious new student. Meaulnes confides to Seurel that he has stumbled upon a garden party at an isolated chateau in the woods, and the beautiful Yvonne de Galais. Unable to find his way back to this elusive residence and the girl with whom he has fallen in love, Meaulnes will be torn between his love and competing claims of loyalty and friendship. Reprinted here in Frank Davison's definitive 1959 translation, this beloved 1913 classic was the only novel completed by Alain-Fournier prior to his death in the opening months of World War I.

"Alain-Fournier was a master of nostalgia.... The power of his writing is in the atmosphere it conveys, which is one of eerie glamour, heightened sexuality and irrevocable loss."—Guardian (London)
