Written on leau was published in 1908, with a record of five hundred copies by a Marseille house: the fire, directed by Émile Sicard. The novel was awarded the same year with the goncourt prize against henri barbusse, amédée rouquès and jeans violis. When the verdict fell signed by the hennic leon, president of the academy, only a few dozen of the copies remained that sold within an hour. Sicard and his printer rushed to paris determined to drown the booksellers of the new edition of this unexpected goncourt. But ill-equipped and so happy to discover the charms and pleasures of the capital to which they melted, they did not find time for this reprint. When the volumes finally came out of the press, it was too late. Miomandre admits, without any regrets or grudges, that it took more than seven years to sell the three thousand copies he had planned for his glory.
The novel invites us to follow the sentimental learning of the young jacques de meillan (alter ego of miomandre francis) in the marseille of the little dawn of the xx. The theme is playful and the writing, light and without any blistering style, gives off to his reading an old-fashioned and vaporous charm. A kind of small eulogy to the youth and love of a very young man whose sap runs through body and spirit of bubbling desires. In the foreword, miomandre warns his readers at the time: \"It requires no effort to be read.Whether you open it through the middle, it will be as intelligible to you as if you address it in the first chapter. Like eternity, it has no beginning or end, but it is less long.\" André puzzled, in the new French magazine, notes about writing about water: \"What tone to talk about this light book? Light as a bubble, inconsistent, bizarre, it evades criticism and seems constantly in formation.
It could be unbearable; He's charming. Exceptional set in excellent condition. Sumptuous illustrations and original drawing signed from grau sala. Sending very neat, with follow-up and insurance, all over the world.
