Description - The Story of a Child (Dodo Press) by Professor Pierre Loti

Louis Marie-Julien Viaud (1850-1923) was a French sailor and writer, who used the pseudonym Pierre Loti. At the age of seventeen, being destined for the navy, he entered the naval school in Brest. In 1876 fellow naval officers persuaded him to turn into a novel passages in his diary dealing with some curious experiences at Istanbul. The result was Aziyade (1879). Several years after leaving Tahiti where he had spent part of his naval training, he published the Polynesian idyll Rarahu (also known as Le Mariage de Loti) (1880) the first book to introduce him to the wider public. In 1883 he really entered the spotlight, when he publish the critically acclaimed My Brother Yves, a novel describing the life of a French naval officer and a Breton sailor. Other works include An Iceland Fisherman (1886), a novel of life among the Breton fisherfolk and a classic of French literature; Madame Chrysantheme (1887), a novel of Japanese manners which is a combination of narrative and travelog; The Story of a Child (1890), a somewhat fictionalized recollection of his childhood and Ramuntcho (1897), a story of contraband runners in the Basque province.
