Product description

Review

“I read it for the first time when I was seventeen and loved every page. I find its depiction of a golden time and place just as poignant now as I did then.” ―Nick Hornby

“[A] favorite . . . a beautiful and mysterious story about the end of childhood.” ―
Claire Messud, The New York Times Book Review

About the Author

Alain-Fournier, christened Henri Alban, was born in La Chapelle d'Angillon (Cher) in 1886, the son of a country school-master.

Les Miracles appeared posthumously in 1924. Alain-Fournier's important correspondence with Jacques Rivi re and his letters to his family were published in 1926 and 1930 respectively. Alain-Fournier was killed in action on the Meuse in 1914.
