"I am convinced that Jouve's modernity--the extraordinary wit, speed, purposeful freedom and hard edge, bordering on cruelty, of his fiction--would appeal tremendously to readers and possibly set off important esthetic reverberations."
--Louis Begley, New York Times Book Review
"The milieu evoked is Catholic, European, and pastoral, a striking setting for a sensual relationship. . . . The author takes as his primary theme the interrelatedness of love and death, viewed here with a decidedly Freudian slant that undoubtedly owes something to the influrence of his wife, a psychiatrist . . . Recommended."
