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.
