About this title


Cendrars recounts the Foreign Legion (including the loss of his arm), his exploits in Africa and South America, and his encounters with everyone from Gallic gipsies to Piquita, the Mexican millionairess. To all his encounters he brings the vitality, savage humor and vivid observation that characterize his dazzling writing. What a writer learns from Cendrars is to follow his nose, to obey life's commands, to worship no other god but life""- Henry Miller.

About the Author:

Blaise Cendrars was the author of more than 20 books and his works have been translated into 11 languages. A founder of the modern movement in literature, he inspired poets from John Dos Passos to Patti Smith.
