Gold: The Marvellous History Of General John Augustus Sutterby Blaise Cendrars $11.41Fiction from Peter Owen Publishers
Translated from French
Cendrars spent fifteen years translating Sutter’s life-story into fiction, departing (often radically) from the known historical facts to reshape the story of one of the great American pioneers with the pure gold of his own imagination. Originally published in 1924, Gold is a work of breathless pace, fantastic humour and soaring invention: an extraordinary story extraordinarily told.
