It is somewhat biographical - especially the name of the heroine Yvonne, for whom he had a doomed infatuation in Paris. Fifteen-year-old Francois Seurel narrates the story of his friendship with seventeen-year-old Augustin Meaulnes as Meaulnes searches for his lost love. Impulsive, reckless and heroic, Meaulnes embodies the romantic ideal, the search for the unobtainable, and the mysterious world between childhood and adulthood.
