French author of fiction and autobiography who received the Nobel Prize in literature in 1947. His most well-known work may be the Immoralist, a publication that was exclusive in its period for its addition of homosexual styles. He was raised in Normandy, France and released his first publication, Les Cahiers d’André Walter (The Publications of André Walter), when he was simply twenty-two years of age. He released Si le grain ne meurt (Unless the Seed Dies), an autobiography, in 1924. He started to understand and accept his homosexual orientation when he is at his early twenties, pursuing an unconsummated relationship along with his cousin, Madeleine Rondeaux. Remarkably, in 1923, he fathered a girl through a short sexual romantic relationship with a female. He fulfilled and befriended Oscar Wilde in Paris.
