La Doulou | In the Land of Pain (Mercure de France, 2007)


Notes on this edition: Daudet, Alphonse. La Doulou (Mercure de France, 2007).

In 2002, Barnes translated Daudet’s journal into English, which brought renewed attention to Daudet’s work. This edition of Daudet’s La Doulou features a preface by Julian Barnes, his additional notes on the text, and his postscript, as was available in Barnes’s translation under the English title In the Land of Pain.
