In The Coiners Gide's main preoccupation is with youth; the eager, curiously intricate reactions of young minds. The emotional abandonment peculiar to adolescence, the paralysing introspection, the sense of walking a tight rope over unknown gulfs, have never been described so well as in this book with a Parisian setting and a universal force and application. 420pp. Size: 8vo Crown (7½" x 5") Translated by Dorothy Bussy. Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
