Le Grand Meaulnes by Alain-Fournier (1913)
When Meaulnes come to Sologne for the first time, everybody is enchanted by his nice looks, nerve, and charm. Nevertheless, when he show up in a bizarre get-together at an enigmatic household and meet a stunning girl concealed inside, his life is never going to be the same. This haunting novel has at its focal point both a Peter Pan in small-town France-a little boy who do not want to grow up-and a Parsifal, who will go to the other end of the earth for his love. Stuck between childish wonder and grownup acquiescence, Alain- Fournier’s storyteller grippingly accompanies the bibliophile through this unforgettable portrayal of despairing companionship and missing youth.
