About this title


Long regarded as one of France's finest writers, Jean Giono (1895-1971) is best known for his classic best seller The Man Who Planted Trees. Conscription reaches into the hills as the First World War comes to a small Provencial community one blazing August. A committed pacifist, Giono produced one of the most affecting accounts of war ever written, with its horrifying scenes of war and descriptions of harsh, primitive conditions in the trenches. His fiercely realistic novel contrasts the wholesale destruction of men, land, and animals at the front with the moral disintegration of the lonely and anxious people left behind.

About the Author:

Jean Giono wrote more than 30 novels as well as many volumes of short stories, plays, poetry, essays, and film scripts. Imprisoned at the beginning of World War II for his pacifist views, he was wrongly imprisoned again for collaboration at the war’s end. The author of the play The Horseman on the Roof and the much-acclaimed The Man Who Planted Trees, he is now firmly established as among the most distinguished of French writers.
