About the Author

Alphonse Daudet was born in Nimes, France, in 1840. Novelist, playwright, and journalist, his success came through his novels and stories. He contracted syphilis at the age of seventeen and died at the age of
fifty-seven.

Julian Barnes is the author of nine novels, a book of stories, and a collection of essays. He is the recipient of the Prix Femina, and in 1988 was made an Officier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. He lives in London.

Reviews

"Startling . . . splendid. . . . Daudet provides the pain in images that . . . have rarely been equaled; and in words that turn wit to its true task of assaying the dark." --The New York Times Book Review

"These are [Daudet's] notes from underground. They include . . . ruminations on fear and fraud, and sharp observations of the healthy. But much of the book--and the book's force--lies in the patient's flailing search for a language to match his suffering." --The New Yorker
