————The Story of Emil Sinclair's Youth

A powerful new translation of Nobel Prize winner Hermann Hesse s masterpiece of youthful rebellion with a foreword and cover art by James Franco A young man awakens to selfhood and to a world of possibilities beyond the conventions of his upbringing in Nobel Prize winner Hermann Hesse s beloved novel "Demian." Emil Sinclair is a quiet boy drawn into a forbidden yet seductive realm of petty crime and defiance. His guide is his precocious, mysterious classmate Max Demian, who provokes in Emil a search for self-discovery and spiritual fulfillment.
