Stendhal - LIFE STORIES
 
 
4/6/1839     Stendhal's 52-Day Novel
On this day in 1839, Stendhal's last novel appeared in French bookshops, the product of fifty-two days of total seclusion and continuous dictation. The aging author had started using a copyist-secretary in 1835, when eyeglasses had become a necessity. This marathon session resulted in The Charterhouse of Parma -- "the collected and embellished memories of a man who is waiting to die."
