Andre Malraux: A Biography Hardcover – April 1, 1997. In this extremely readable biography, Curtis Cate attempts to correct the image of Malraux as a heroic, committed activist and intellectual. Cate, however, does not delve deeply enough into how the political, cultural and social environment of the times impacted Malraux, and the biography comes up short as a consequence.

No modern French writer has aroused as much passion as Andre Malraux, who combined a life of action worthy of Indiana Jones with a political and literary career of extreme controversy. His capture, after a spectacular temple-robbery in Cambodia, made him a left-wing "cause celebre" and established his opposition to colonial regimes. In the Spanish civil war he led a flamboyant air squadron, and later he became one of De Gaulle's strongest supporters, and was often seen as a traitor to his revolutionary ideals.
