Fiction. Translated from the French by W.B. Keckler. Together in one volume, the first-ever English translations of Andre Malraux's two most extreme works of fiction: the voluptuous surrealist novella The Kingdom of Farfelu (1928), and Paper Moons, a funny, ferociously absurdist novella from 1921. "Those who thought they knew Malraux as the heroic adventurer, fierce moralist, and author of Man's Fate, should be prepared to have their minds blown."--New York Press. French writer and politician Andre Malraux (1901-1976) was one of the most distinguished novelists of the 20th century. He is the author of The Royal Way, Man's Fate, The Walnut Trees of Altenburg, Saturn: An Essay on Goya, and Lazarus, to list only some favorites among his many titles.
