Andre Malraux's life is more interesting than his books. Born in France in 1901, he was involved with the revolutionary movement in China in the 20s (The setting for his most famous novel.), fought with the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War, and was part of the French Resistance. Like Sartre and Camus he was deeply interested in politics and literature, but he was perhaps much more involved than they ever would be. Later he would be in the French government. "Man's Fate" (La Condition Humaine) is about revolutionaries/terrorists/freedom fighters (take your pick) in 1920s China. It presumes some knowledge of the history and politics (I have none.) and is an example of how didacticism and political messaging don't always work in novel form.
