Le Grand Meaulnes by Alain-Fournier

Meaulnes

Outstanding novel this. Think it is regarded as a major classic in France and it is fairly easy to understand why. Difficult to summarise but a wonderful evocation of coming of age, love and loss in small French village at the start of the 20th century. Strongly recommended.
