Anne Green (born 1891, Savannah, Georgia, d. 1979, Paris) was an American writer and translator, the sister of Julien Green. While a child, Green's parents moved to France, where her father, ruined by a financial crisis and poor investments, came to settle. She spent her childhood in Le Havre, before her parents moved to Paris, where her brother Julien was born. She and her brother both participated in World War I, in which she volunteered as an ambulance driver.

In noted French writer Julien Green's Each Man in His Darkness ( 1960), Wilfred, like the hero in Dostoyevsky's The Idiot, serves as a kind of prophet who inspires faith and love in all he meets . Introduction by Giovanni Lucera. Great Britain: Quartet Encounters, 1990.

In noted French writer Julien Green's Each Man in His Darkness ( 1960), Wilfred, like the hero in Dostoyevsky's The Idiot, serves as a kind of prophet who inspires faith and love in all he meets: Angus, Tommy, Max, Phoebe, Mr. Schoenhals, and even Mr. Knight. Wilfred's quest for a metaphysical balance between the desires of the flesh and his faith in God lead him to inspire others, despite the enormous sense of guilt that overwhelms him as an existential traveler in a confusing world of misplaced values and ideals. Translated by Vyvyan Holland.

Julien Green (September 6, 1900 – August 13, 1998) was an American writer who authored several novels (The Dark Journey, The Closed Garden, Moira, Each Man in His Darkness, the Dixie trilogy, et. ., a four-volume autobiography (The Green Paradise, The War at Sixteen, Love in America and Restless Youth) and his famous Diary (in nineteen volumes, 1919–1998). He wrote primarily in French and was the first non-French national to be elected to the Académie française.

24-year-old Irish Catholic Wilfred Ingram arrives at the old manor Wormsloe of Uncle Horace, who is dying. He encounters his aunt, superior Mrs. Howard and her son Angus, and Protestant cousin James and his wife Phoebe. Only Phoebe is kind to Wilfred, and inspires instant lust and love in him. As a Catholic, Wilfred baptizes the old roue' Horace, who fears dying unsaved and who secretly gives him a big envelope containing old love letters and photographs and a dozen shares of significant worth. After the funeral, all head back to the New York area. (Actually, author Green never specifically names locales.)

Wilfred lives in a mediocre single room, with a crucifix above the bed. He works as a shirt salesman in a big store. The great schism in his existence is his compulsion to sleep around with a succession of easy women, in disturbing conflict with his faith.

Wilfred has encounters with his aforementioned relatives, and is ever more determined to possess Phoebe. He has a half dozen male acquaintances. And the majority of characters are disposed to discuss the Catholic faith with Wilfred. Actually, he's a pretty average 24-year-old who knows desire overrides faith and he is terrified of sexual disease. (Condoms are never mentioned in this 1960 novel, nor are telephones, but a number of letters do figure into the plot.)

I was struck by Part I at Wormsloe (90 pages) in which the main characters are skillfully etched and thrown into confrontation. In Part II in New York (250 pages), however, Green reverts to his familiar practice of detailing every thought, emotion, and behavior of the protagonist who, be it he or she, is a middling human being and not the stuff of heroes.

As a novelist, Julian Green shunned an outline. His method was to create characters and see where they led him. In this book, we get well-turned incidents, convincing dialogue, surprises, but we start to perceive that the author is laying a lot of groundwork so finally he can veer off into whatever direction strikes him to achieve a conclusion. When it turns out one character is a mental case with a gun, we feel that Green has just been embroidering much of the time.

Catholics may better appreciate this novel than other readers as it encompasses desire versus faith, the crucifix, the rosary, baptism, confession, communion, mass, extreme unction, forgiveness, salvation, preparation for death expected and unexpected.

The story begins with the arrival of a young man at a small country station in the United States of America. As his origins are poor, his relatives only send a rude young coachman in a cart to fetch him and take him to his dying Uncle's opulant home in Virginia. On the way he loses a glove: an act of definance which destiny is there to meet.
The characters in this book all struggle with their emotions, their sexuality, their age, their appearance, their faith and their emptiness in the earthly night which flares up at the end of the book, as if the door opened by death allows in the hope of resurrection.
This novel describes the journey of a soul which hides, which tears itself apart and saves itself, a bildungsroman in which the heart is the final arbiter of the presence of love in human lives.
From the gothic landsacepe of Virginia to the confusing dreamscape of New York City, the narrator infuses an angst that epitomizes the restless feel of inadequacy the protagonist suffers and betrays when viewed through Julian Green's style of sublime incandescence.
