KIRKUS REVIEW

Published in French under the title, Le Temps du Mepris. Won the 1934 Prix Goncourt. Not strictly fiction -- it reads like the personal experience of Kassner. Intellectual Communist, during his internment by the Nazi and his miraculous escape. Stream of consciousness handling of the man's mental torture in prison, of his feeling of impending insanity, of the sense of unreality in his return. Malraux has an extraordinary restraint, an emotional content without hysteria that leaves a searing impression.
