From the cover: “For some reason not easy to understand this modern major French novelist is little known in this country. It is to be hoped that Leonard Rolfe’s current book will remedy that situation. Carefully he has traced Chamson’s career as essayist, poet, film maker, editor and polemicist, president of PEN, cultural ambassador, art critic, curator, underground warrior in World War II during the Occupation, member of the French Academy, and so on. More painstakingly he has followed the development of Chamson’s genius in the novels that make up that part of the corpus of his achievements.”
