First in this edition in Great Britain and uncommon in any. Blaise Cendrars was born in 1887. Of mixed Swiss-Scottish descent, he lived an adventurous and nomadic life in Moscow, Peking, New York and Paris, which inspired much of his zestful and vivid narratives. He was the author of more than twenty books and, along with Apollinaire and Max Jacob, one of the founders of the modern movement. Cendrars died in Paris in 1961. In this third book of a remarkable auto-biographical series Blaise Cendrars, poet and adventurer, casts a sardonic eye over the absurdities of human conflict as he experienced them in the Great War.
