Paris: Ollendorf (1923).
1st Edition. Soft cover. Item #7155
One of the most important pre-War gay novels written in France. The novel has strong revolutionary elements of anarchism, and captures the spirit of the age, including vivid descriptions of the drag balls of Paris. The protagonist, an academic, falls in love with his friend Didier, but the relationship is complicated by Didier's sister Hélène, who also loves Ryls. Very good in original wrappers, light browning. Tamagne, Thèse, 543 ; Barbedette, 310.
