In a novel about a novelist writing a novel that mirrors the novel he is in, what is the reality of the story? The Counterfeiters, written by Nobel Prize winner, Andr Gide, is an impressively layered and experimental book that follows the story of douard X., an aspiring author and his surrounding schoolmates at the Pension Aza's, some of whom are involved in a counterfeiting ring. Observing their actions and motivations, douard begins to question the value of a counterfeit: what differentiates the real and fake, where the line of authentic reality lies, and how the very idea of counterfeiting transcends the physical coin itself and applies to those who produce them.
Featuring both The Counterfeiters and The Journal of the Counterfeiters, this edition of Andr Gide's self-proclaimed, "first novel," is a classic of French literature reimagined for modern readers.
