About This Item

Prentuce Hall, NJ, 1970. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine /Fine . One questions whether it is really necessary to have one of Mr. Payne's massive, conventional... biographies of Malraux in the face of Malraux's own dazzling Anti-Memoirs (1968) It seems unnecessary to retrace his endless roles… as aesthete, adventurer, cultural historian and public image. Malraux was always concerned with the very biggest questions of the day (where is Western man heading? how does the civilization of the East relate to the destiny of the species?) and whatever one thinks of his conclusions, the range and sophistication of his questions are always apparent." [Kirkus Review] One of the foremost French intellectuals of the 20th Century. Major, definitive biography. Numerous black and white photos. 481 pages; detailed index. Slight soiling. There is a protective mylar cover. 1ST EDITION.
