André Gide

André Gide (November 22, 1869 - February 19, 1951) was a French author.

André Paul Guillaume Gide was born in Paris, France on November 22, 1869. He was brought up in isolated conditions, and became a prolific writer at an early age.

Gide's novels, including L'Immoraliste (1902), La Porte Étroite (1909), and Les Faux Monnayeurs (1925), often deal with the kind of moral dilemmas that faced him in real life. His autobiography, Si le grain ne meurt, was published in 1926. In 1947, he received the Nobel Prize in Literature.
