    Description
    Information
    'Andre Gide was a pederast, also a moralist; a man torn between the chilly French Protestant faith in which he was reared... and naturally blithe paganism; a sometime Communist sympathiser, later reviled by the Communists... Alan Sheridan's admirable biography sees Gide in close-up, following him day-by-day... he has done him justice; Andre Gide: A Life in the Present ought to encourage readers to seek out Gide's writings.'
    Allan Massie, Daily Telegraph

    'Alan Sheridan's Gide restored my interest in this favourite of my adolescence - and revealed the wildly active sex life of France's leading moralist.'
    Edmund White, Observer Books of the Year

    'Alan Sheridan has given us a biography as scrupulous and critically alert as it is lively and sympathetic.'
    Paul Binding, Independent on Sunday
