Pierre Drieu La Rochelle, whose status as a political untouchable has obscured his contribution to literature, was a major figure in the modernist movement. He introduced the French reading public to the works of Hemingway, Lawrence, Huxley, and Malraux. He was the first prominent semiotic analyst of the music halls and circuses of Paris. And he wrote a widely acclaimed masterpiece, Glles, a realist collage of life in the twenties and thirties. In the first cohesive reading of all of Drieu's fiction, Rima Drell Reck takes a giant step toward rehabilitating the artistic reputation of this complex figure.
