The Immoralist

Andre Gide

Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd
Usually available for dispatch within 24-72 hours

A reserved, naive, young academic marries and goes on his honeymoon. The next time his three best friends hear from him, years later, is a summons to the heart of Algeria. There they are told the story of his near death, recovery, and awakening to life - to his repressed longings and the consequences of indulging them.
Gide examines, without moralising, the fault-line between the individual and society and the moral and psychological tensions that arise when the individual awakens.
