This novella has many things going for it. The author's sense of melancholy is superb and his spare, uncluttered writing wastes no space. Yet, while his simple, clean language moves you forward quickly, it leaves you holding souvenirs of every character you meet. And then there are the witty one-liners, such as this one about the change from times of affluence and ennui to austerity ("The good times when we wanted to die were already over.") The only downside to the piece is an aloof style that (reminiscent of Vidal's The Golden Age) keeps you from getting too close to anyone. It isn't haughtiness, just self-protection, but still. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803270720, Paperback)

French writer Roger Grenier’s stunning novel tells of a group of friends in the southwest of France whose lives are forever changed by the German Occupation. The moral failings of one of them, Charles Merlin, which at first seem trivial and personal, assume more sinister dimensions when he collaborates with the Nazis. The narrator of the novel, a member of the resistance, watches Charles’s decline and gains a poignant education in his own failings as he tries to rescue the women in Charles’s life.
