"One of the foremost dramatists of contemporary France, as well as a novelist and polemicist of intense power, [the author] is a figure of perennial controversy. Now for the first time five of his most successful and important plays have been translated into English ... in textually complete versions supervisied by Montherlant." The five are: "Queen After Death, or How to Kill Women" ("La Reine morte"); "Malatesta"; "No Man's Son, or More Than Blood" ("Fils de personne"); "Tomorrow the Dawn" ("Demain il fera jour"); and "The Master of Santiago" ("Le MaƮtre de Santiago").
