4.0 out of 5 stars When You Love You Must Depart, 16 Sept. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: When You Love You Must Depart (Paperback)
I found this novella hantingly compelling. ("Haunting" is the a word that I want to use although the book has nothing conventionally "haunting" about it.) Delicate and attentive, this novel is not ashamed of its interest in intellectuals -- the story is told by a compulsive reader who lives in an artists' colony. It is, in other words, a novel that appears particularly continental.
Much of the novel describes an improptu car trip to the female narrator's rural home; and this works as well as in some films based on the same device, highlighting the freedom that can be created out of "ordinary" life. The novel is almost autobiographical in its questioning of past events; suggestive of meanings without being portentous; and responsive to the unheroic happiness to be found in mere living.
