About the Author

André Gide (1869-1951) was a prolific author of novels, short stories, poetry, plays, travel writing, and autobiography. Though he entered the world of letters as a prominent figure in the symbolist movement, Gide later turned toward a more confessional and exploratory form, ruminating on questions of morality, sexuality, desire, religion, and the nature of the self in his work. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1947.

Damion Searls has translated eleven books for NYRB Classics, including Uwe Johnson's four-book novel Anniversaries (published in two volumes). This is his second translation of Gide's Marshlands; he also rewrote it as "56 Water Street," the first short story in his collection What We Were Doing and Where We Were Going.

Dubravka Ugresic is the author of seven works of fiction, including The Museum of Unconditional Surrender and Baba Yaga Laid an Egg, and six collections of essays. Her most recent book is The Age of Skin: Essays. In 2016 she received the Neustadt International Prize for Literature for her body of work.
