Married to a great man, in love with a man like no other ...
In order to ventriloquize a long-forgotten, peculiar Frenchman, Humphreys has added to her trademark exquisite prose a stylish wryness. Witty, sad and gorgeous in equal measure, this story of a man like no other probes love like a wound
Humphreys' pacing and story-telling are well-honed... an engaging novel told with wit and imagination.
A real exploration of the heart. Strange and amusing at times, this tender, life affirming novel made me contemplate love in a whole new way.
This informative account rescues Sainte-Beuve from Hugo's shadow.
