Dealer Notes
‘Awarded the Northcliffe Prize for the best French novel of 1931; Chosen in America as the Book of the Month; and praised by André Maurois, André Gide and Harold Nicolson’: praise indeed from the front panel. Alongside Gide and Gaston Gillimard, Schlumberger co-founded the Nouvelle Revue Française in 1909, a long-running French literary journal.
Dorothy Bussy (née Strachey, 1865-1980) was a close friend and translator of Gide. Her only novel, the sapphically-inclined Olivia was published by the Hogarth Press in 1949.
