|Title:||Les Thibault: La Mort du père (Thibault #6)|
M. Thibault, revolted at the idea of dying, measures the hypocrisies of his life, the stiffnesses which have distanced him from his sons, the nothingness which awaits him: his faith wavers. Antoine resolves to shorten his physical sufferings by an overdose of morphine. The funeral takes place in great pomp at Crouy, without Jacques, though perhaps the most affected. Continuing the exploration of the complex feelings and relationships within the family, this tome rests sharply the question of euthanasia, and that of the limits of religious discourse.

Author Bio for du Gard, Roger Martin
Roger Martin du Gard (1881–1958) was a French novelist and winner of the 1937 Nobel Prize for Literature. He was born in Paris and worked as a paleographer (the study of ancient literature) and an archivist. In his work as a writer, he brought a spirit of objectivity and regard for detail, and because of his concern with documentation and the relationship of social reality to individual development, his fiction has been linked with the realist and naturalist traditions of the 19th century. His sympathy for the humanist socialism and pacifism of Jean Jaurès is evident in his work. he is best known for his multi-volume work, "The Thibaults", which chronicles the life of two brothers who are raised in a well to do family and their experiences during the First Word War.
