MY DEAR TIME'S WASTE

On our return we would find a typical Perigord luncheon, always delicious and the result of careful thought, which was enlivened by the wit of my mother-in-law and the gaiety of the children. Then Simone and I would go back to work each in our own place. Toward five o'clock we would leave by the Oak Path or the Chestnut Path for a longer walk on which we would sometimes be gone two hours, discussing the progress of the novel. I would tell her about the new chapters. She would approve or criticize my ideas. When it was a question of the conduct of the heroine she would often foresee better than I could myself what that rebellious spirit was going to demand of us. We got to the point, both of us, where we considered these characters real and, as in the time of Climats, they acted independently of me and sometimes contrary to my plans. In La Cerde de Fandlle which was finished at Essendieras during the summer of 1931, I did not wish Denise Herpain to become the mistress of Jacques Pelletot before their marriage. But one day as we were walking along the Oak Path I had to confess the indiscretion they had just committed:
`I did all I could to prevent it ... But he was a soldier and wounded; he was going away again; she had great need of sacrifice ... In short, what could you expect? There it is!'
`What will Monsieur Doumic think?' my wife asked.
The novel La Cercle de Famille was, in fact, intended for the Revue des Deux Mondes. When it was finished I was a little anxious about the impression that the sins of my heroine might produce on Monsieur Doumic and I read the beginning of my book to his son-in-law, my very dear friend, Louis Gillet. He encouraged me and I took the manuscript to Monsieur Doumic. A week later the latter summoned me and, in friendly sternness, received me with his legs wrapped up in a blanket.
`I am very sorry,' he said. `I am even upset ... I definitely wanted a novel by you, but the Revue cannot publish this one ... No, indeed it is not possible. Our subscribers would protest.'
`But why, Monsieur?'
'Why? You ask that? These successive adulteries. ...'
`But, Monsieur, there is hardly one great French novel without adultery ... Madame Bovary ... Le Pere Goriot. . . . '
`Oh, to be sure, the Revue is obliged to admit adultery. But it only admits it when accompanied by remorse. At no moment does your heroine repent of her misdeeds. . . . '
