Three programmes dealing with current literary trends in France, in which various authors discuss their own work and their attitudes to the nouveau roman 1: Henry de Montherlant talking to BARBARA BRAY
Recently Barbara Bray talked to M. de Monthedant in French about his new novel Le Chaos et la Nuit-his first for twenty-four years—which he feels French critics have misunderstood. Here he gives his own interpretation of it, relating it to the rest of his work, and goes on to talk about his present preoccupations and future plans.
