MY DEAR TIME'S WASTE

And so my novel was rejected. I felt no rancour towards Monsieur Doumic whose strong character I admired and who, I could not doubt, knew his subscribers better than I did.
The inspiration for La Cerde de Famille was a conversation I had with a young woman who described the emotions she had felt as a little girl when she discovered that a man used to come to see her mother without her father's knowledge. Her story was so poignant that I asked her how the incident had turned out. She told me and furnished me with many excellent details, but the actual romance stopped abruptly. I needed a conclusion. And then I remembered another person who might very well represent what Denise Herpain, married and unsatisfactorily married, would become. From a combination of these two characters with certain traits borrowed from other women La Cercle de Farnille was born. I took pleasure in reviving some of the characters from Climats and Bernard Quesnay. Then in L'Instinct du Bonheur which I wrote next I made a point of establishing comiections between the industrial Normandy of my first books and the agricultural Perigord of this. It was not a bad beginning and perhaps if the times had been different and my life more tranquil I might, in a series of novels, have been able to create a fresco of post-war French Society. This was what Alain advised; he, unlike most of the critics, considered me more of a novelist than an essayist.
`And now,' he wrote me after La Cercle de Famille, `and now you must create a living world.'

Events decided otherwise. The political life of Europe was rapidly becoming so disquieting that it was no longer easy to find refuge in the world of fiction. In France Tardieu had been defeated in the election of 1932. We knew him well, for he too had been a frequenter of the Avenue Hoche. He was fond of good living, cultured and cynical, at least in words, for I believe he retained traces of sentimentality. He had kidney trouble and the doctors told him that if he went on eating and drinking so well he would never live to be old.
`I'm not concerned about that,' he would say. `Short and sweet!'
After his defeat he went to live in Menton at the Hotel de l'Annonciata, and we went to see him there. He was writing political books and expected to transform France with his pen:
