Customer Review

on 9 July 2001
Bewildered and adrift in Paris, Sasha drinks away her gloom in cafés, trying to forget a man who once loved her...She's a sensitive middle-aged woman struggling with her life and her pessimism in a hostile world where "there is no past, no future, there is only this blackness, changing faintly, slowly, but always the same". Both desesperate and strong, with a great sense of humour and a true psychological depth, the heroine is incredibly modern. Partly autobiographical, the story is told in the first person which sounds more intimate and moving.In the background, the Bohemian Paris of the 1930's with its artists and gigolos... No real plot, but a bitter sweet atmosphere _recalling Fitzgerald_ and the beauty of Jean Rhys' poetic prose. A melancholic and impressionist novel. After Good Morning, Midnight, Jean Rhys disappeared and her novels went out of print, she was even thought to be dead!! Yet, as the result of a successful adaptation of Good Morning, Midnight on the BBC in 1958, she was finally rediscovered; she was at work on a novel entitled "Wide Sargasso Sea"...
