Memoirs of a Madman and November


This product is sold out

Two novellas by the author of Madame Bovary offer great insight into his formative years

One of Flaubert's earliest writings, but published only after his death, Memoirs of a Madman presents us with a young man as he reflects—alternating between musings on the present and memories of the past—on the years that have brought him to "madness," recalling the innocence of his boyhood, the first stirrings of sexual awakening, and his abrupt initiation into the adult world. Also included in this volume is another, similarly themed early work, the autobiographical novella November, which Nadine Gordimer called "an unsurpassed testament of adolescence."
