When Lafcadio Wluiki, a street-smart nineteen-year-old in 1890s Paris, learns that he's heir to an ailing French nobleman's fortune, he's seized by wanderlust. Traveling through Rome in expensive new threads, he becomes entangled in a Church extortion scandal involving an imprisoned Pope, a skittish purveyor of graveyard statuary, an atheist-turned-believer on the edge of insolvency, and all manner of wastrels, swindlers, aristocrats, adventurers, and pickpockets. With characteristic irony, Gide contrives a hilarious detective farce whereby the wrong man is apprehended, while the charmingly perverse Lafcadio--one of the most original creations in all modern fiction--goes free

Correspondance qui s'étalera sur trente ans et qui à son terme regroupera 600 lettres de Gide et 500 lettres de Dorothy Bussy. Cette dernière, traductrice des écrits de Gide en anglais, éprouve tant pour l'homme que pour l'oeuvre "un intérêt passionné" d'une constance remarquable. Gide sera flatté par cette passion déclarée mais fera évoluer, avec patience, estime, affection et cruauté, les sentiments de sa confidente et collaboratrice vers une amitié plus conforme à ses goûts et désirs. Brillante introduction. Un document important pour comprendre Gide "intime"
