The Inner Adventure

Conversations with Louis Calaferte
Louis Calaferte and Jean Pierre Pauty

Calaferte had recently been awarded the Grand Prix National des Lettres when he sat down with Jean-Pierre Pauty, a friend and movie director, to discuss his life and work. The Inner Adventure brings these interviews to English-speaking readers for the first time, revealing the creative process and philosophies of a writer who has challenged others with his brutal honesty and his view that only experience can be the basis of creativity, thought, and knowledge.
