Henri Barbusse (May 17, 1873 – August 30, 1935) was a French novelist. Barbusse first came to fame with the publication of his novel Le Feu (translated by William Fitzwater Wray as Under Fire) in 1916, which was based on his experiences during World War I. By this time, Barbusse had become a pacifist, and his writing demonstrated his growing hatred of militarism. Le Feu drew criticism at the time for its harsh naturalism, but won the Prix Goncourt.
A young man spies on his neighbours through a crack in the wall in his Paris hotel. He witnesses every aspect of life, love, birth, betrayal and death. A fascinating and scandalous account of watching life go by.
