General Fiction | The Martian | George du Maurier

The Martian, by George du Maurier, is a largely autobiographical novel published in 1898 and the author’s third. It describes the life of Barty Josselin as told by his close friend Robert Maurice, starting from their school days in Paris in the 1850s. Written in long descriptive passages with very little dialogue and many digressions, the book had considerably less success in its time than its predecessor, the popular Trilby.
