Encounters with Gide

As I set off reading Andre Gide's The Counterfeiters thought it might be handy to remind myself and the small band of readers of this blog of my previous encounters with Gide.

His writing can wander into the philosophical and religious territory but he is a brave writer that is prepared to tackle difficult and interesting questions. He is also a very honest writer using the editor's preface to confess to faults in his books and in the case of Fruits of the Earth to poor sales.

Here are the other Gide books I have read over the past few years:

Strait is the Gate

The Immoralist

Fruits of the Earth
