Ever so quietly-- Nov. 16 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Only a French author could have written this novel. Full of soul and intricate feelings, but not really going anywheres.It is a mental exercise more than a story. The French are very good at this. One of the best is still Francoise Sagan. This book doesn't even come close.
