London 1905 ... a girl playing the piano ... dancers at a Fête Mystérieuse ... a bewitched young Alain-Fournier yearns for lost love.
An outpouring of poetry, letters and song sow the seeds of his great novel, Le Grand Meaulnes, published in 1913, a year before he was killed in the Great War.
Created by Tyrone Landau and Luke Dixon.
