Andr^ Malraux has been an active
intellectual for roughly four decades. Unde
DeGaulfe, he was at one time Minister of
Culture. He has, grinning all the while,
faced a firing squad. Malraux has also known
such world figures as Gandhi, Nehru,Chou
En-Li, Mao, and so on, ad infinitum.
As a novelist, he is best known for
"Man's Fate, " a work dealing with the
turbulent China of 1927. This year, his
