Meet the Author
Louis-Ferdinand Céline (1894-1961) was a French writer and doctor whose novels are antiheroic visions of human suffering. Accused of collaboration with the Nazis, Céline fled France in 1944 first to Germany and then to Denmark. Condemned by default (1950) in France to one year of imprisonment and declared a national disgrace, Céline returned to France after his pardon in 1951, where he continued to write until his death. His classic books include Journey to the End of the Night, Death on the Installment Plan, London Bridge, North, Rigadoon, Conversations with Professor Y, Castle to Castle, and Normance.
Stanford Luce (1923-2007) was born in Boston, attended Dartmouth, and fought in Normandy during World War II. Using the G.I. Bill, he earned an M.A. and Ph.D. in French studies from Yale University. He began his career at Miami University in 1952 and retired as professor emeritus in
1988. Luce specialized on the works of Louis Ferdinand Céline,
publishing four books and several articles on the French novelist.
