What makes this book particularly interesting is the way it is told. It has the feel of a novel that has been condensed, pared to its emotional heart, with so much left out and implied. This is achieved through an extraordinary brevity - most of the chapters are less than a page long and have the feel, the intensity, of prose-poems. The space that surrounds them, however, is never too large or mysterious to puzzle or dissatisfy, it gives us plenty of scope for our own imagination. There is something fable-like in the telling too - this is not a psychological study full of introspection, it is terse and tough within its lyricism.
You can read it in a couple of hours yet at the end you feel as if you've read a long, French, classical eighteenth century novel. It's dreamlike, intimate, finely honed, tragic, sublime; it expresses the intensity of forbidden love, of grief and abandonment, of passion that is both revealing and destructive. A fine and distinctive novella
