About this Item

The dustjacket is a bit scuffed but all pages intact and legible. Good reading copy. Clean. No store stamps. --- --- This novel portrays with exquisite detail the mounting emotional crisis in the life of Jean Calmet, a Swiss schoolteacher in his late thirties. Calmet's father, a tower of strength, has just died. His prodigious vitality and virility had crushed his whole family and ruined Jean's childhood. As we watch his cremation we sense that even though his body has been reduced to ashes, his spirit survives to haunt Jean. Bookseller Inventory # 12191
