Description

The years around 1930 are marked by turning points in most areas of French life, and the fiction of the time is a privileged means of understanding those changes. This book traces vital transitions in French politics, society, and culture; the focus then moves to the novel, a genre uniquely equipped to reflect topical shifts and breakthroughs.
