‘When Meaulnes first arrives at the local school in Sologne, everyone is captivated by his good looks, daring and charisma. But when Meaulnes disappears for several days, and returns with tales of a strange party at a mysterious house – and his love for the beautiful girl hidden within it, Yvonne de Galais – his life has been changed forever. In his restless search for his Lost Estate and the happiness he found there, Meaulnes, observed by his loyal friend Francois, may risk losing everything he ever had. Poised between youthful admiration and adult resignation, Alain-Fournier’s compelling narrator carries the reader through this evocative and unbearably poignant portrayal of desperate friendship and vanished adolescence.’  First English translation of Fournier’s classic work.  Housed within a dust-jacket by John Minton and illustrated with stunning lithographs by the artist.   Introduction by Bonamy Dobree.  No inscriptions, highlighting or underlingin.  Binding strong.  Very good in worn wrapper.
