Name of a book? Slightly boring book written by wealthy French man who died young?

Name of a book? Slightly boring book written by wealthy French man who died young? Topic: Authors writing about memories
June 24, 2019 / By Anakin
Question: I am searching for a book, and the memory I have of it is very vague. The book is a classic, and I believe it's written by a French man. The author was wealthy, but he was depressed and I believe he died young. I don't remember much about the book, other than the author spent around 40 pages describing something (possibly door?) and that the book requires a lot of patience to read. I don't know if these information is enough, but it's all that I can remember (and I can't be sure that all of the info is correct). This has been bothering me for a long time, so any help would be appreciated!

"A La Recherche Du Temps Perdu" by Marcel Proust, possibly? I haven't got the patience to read it, but long descriptions were a feature of his work. The English title is "In Search Of Lost Time".

Probably the book of goats, since Sheep represents the "Saints of God and goats represent all UNSAVED. Matthew 25:32 New International Version (NIV) 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. It's a Choice....All are invited to choose to be a 'Sheep'. Sheep are followers. Blessing ALL with having their name written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

To divide the "sheep" from the "goats" represents the division of those who utilize magickal practices as to those who don't, and whether those laws too, were followed. Muslim may have their own method of division. Maybe there are some blending, such as jew w/christian ... muslim/christian ... atheist/christian ... atheist/muslim ... There were verses in scripture, not to blend of two different kinds, could refer to religious rite ... but then also, brother and sister should not marry .. (referring to some forms of christianity brother/sisterhoods) ... I was considering, how many aspects of scripture were not followed, and coveting seems to be vast ... maybe God was looking for a different kind of spiritual blend. An authority, in control of all things, something capable of forming heaven and earth from dust ... Could kind of do as He choses ... I sometimes wish I could have been a part of something grand ... but my time here seems empty ...

For some reason I think you might be talking about Albert Camus. He was a French writer and died at the age of 46. Two of his famous books are The Stranger and The Plague. His books reflected his theories of the absurd and deal with the question, "If life has no meaning, is it worth living?" You certainly might have found this a depressing idea. His answer though is that life is worth living because we can create our own meaning.

You could be talking about Joris-Karl Huysmans "A Rebours". It isn't very long but he seriously spends the entire first half of the novel describing his house.

there are a lot of books that have been published just to help you with this. There should be a specific format for the manuscript, but, depending on what kind of book youre writing, the format differs. Try sendingg it in to a bunch of different companies, but keep in mind that it may take them a few months to respond. If they don't like your book, don't sweat it - just make some adjustments and send it to another company! dont listen to anyone elses negative comments.. just try your best :)
