Description:

"This is Mauriac's first novel, and its appearance in English completes the collected presentation of his works here. Mauriac is the elder statesman of French literature and the Nobel prize-winner, and this small roman d'analyse, traditional in its concerns (he is the most profoundly Christian and Catholic of French writers), is also contemplative in its approach." - Kirkus Reviews
