Journey of the Dead by Francois Augieras Journey of the Dead, Paperback (January 2011)

Journey of the Dead began as a diary in the Fifties when Francois Augieras was a shepherd in the Sahara. Written as an autobiographical narrative, the narrator makes no secret of the pleasure he derives from his illicit encounters, or his repudiation of conventional morality. Even more striking however, is the poetic lyricism of Augieras's writing

Journey to Mount Athos by Francois Augieras Journey to Mount Athos, Paperback (March 2007)

Represents a journey of self-discovery for both author and reader. This work is described as a Buddhist Pilgram's Progress, with the protagonist's wanderings mirroring his journey towards spiritual enlightenment.

Author Biography - Francois Augieras

Francois Augerias was born in 1925 in Rochester, New York. His father was French; a pianist, his mother a Polish emigree. After his father died he returned to Paris, but spent his adolesence in Perigord, which was to be his refuge during a life of restless wandering. In 1945 he went to Algiers for a year, living with his reclusive uncle, a retired colonel, and in a Trappist monastery. This, and time spent with the monks of Athos, were profound influences on both his writing and his painting, often likened to modern icons. Andre Gide, who knew him, described his writing as a bizarre delight. Augerias died in a hospice at Domme in 1971 aged forty-six.
