An account of the short life of the French communist activist, Paul Nizan. Nizan died in 1940 at the age of 35. A dedicated member of the French communist party throughout his adult life, he nonetheless resigned from the party in September 1939, following the Nazi-Soviet pact and the Soviet invasion of Poland. Judged a traitor to the communist cause in its hour of need, he was subsequently denigrated by the PCF during the Cold War period, and was rescued from oblivion only in 1960 when his lifelong friend Jean-Paul Sartre, prefaced a new edition of Nizan's first angry anti-establishment text, "Aden Arabie". He produced a wide-range of communist inspired writings, notably three novels - "Antoine Bloye", "Le Cheval de Troie" and "La Conspiration". The blend of communist militancy and existential angst which Nizan distils in each of these novels is the centre of analysis in this book.
