A radio self-portrait of the brilliant and controversial French novelist Celine, pen-name of Dr Louis Ferdinand Destouches (1894-1961) Created by MICHAEL KITTERMASTER with Patrick Magee as Celine
He flirted with the left, was disenchanted by a visit to Russia, was virulent in his anti-Semitism and. when he was branded a ' collaborator ' during World War II, he fled to Germany and Denmark. His last ten years he spent in France as a recluse and a doctor for the poor.
I Journey to the End of the Night caused a great stir, but it was my undoing; I should never have written it. Medicine was my real vocation. I really wanted to become a psychiatrist. That would have served some purpose. A mad doctor in charge of madmen. I'd have been respected if I'd done that!'
