On a écrit que l'auteur de "la Chartreuse de Parme" avait souhaité "d'être à soi-même plus intérieur et plus étranger qu'il n'est permis". Telle est l'ambiguïté de ce texte capital, véritable confession où Stendhal s'efforce de rejoindre Henri Beyle, et où, en retour, la vérité de l'autobiographie prépare et implique le mensonge, peut-être plus vrai, de la fiction romanesque.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0940322897, Paperback)

The Life of Henry Brulard is the autobiography of one of France's greatest writers, Stendhal, author of The Red and the Black and The Charterhouse of Parma. Here, writing at white heat and with such ferocious honesty and indignation that his book was to remain unpublishable for more than a century after its composition, Stendhal revisits his unhappy childhood in a stuffy provincial town and bares his rebellious heart. His adored mother, who died when he was only seven; a father devoted only to his own social ambitions; the aunt whose daily cruelties passed for care: these are among the indelible portraits in a work that captures the sights, sounds, places, and characters of Stendhal's youth, its pleasures and sorrows, with preternatural clarity and immediacy. Full of dazzling images and burning emotions, The Life of Henry Brulard is a vivid memoir that is also an extraordinary work of the imagination.
