Synopsis: Two brothers, Marceau and Ange Jason, are members of a family renowned and respected for its brutality and are therefore bound together with ties stronger than those of ordinary brotherly love. This affection soon turns to hatred after Marceau kills a wild horse with a single blow at a country fair, becoming the local wrestling champion. As his strength increases and his fame spreads, the younger sibling's jealousy causes this bond to snap. The end, when it comes, is a violent—and deadly—confrontation. Two Riders of the Storm is a story of a Cain-and-Abel-like struggle for supremacy in its most primitive form described with an intense and stark poetic beauty that transforms the brutal imagery into elemental forces of life death.
About the Author: Jean Giono wrote more than 30 novels as well as many volumes of short stories, plays, poetry, essays, and film scripts. Imprisoned at the beginning of World War II for his pacifist views, he was wrongly imprisoned again for collaboration at the war’s end. The author of the play The Horseman on the Roof and the much-acclaimed The Man Who Planted Trees, he is now firmly established as among the most distinguished of French writers.

Book Description Peter Owen, 2002. PaperBack. Book Condition: Very Good. This story, set in the remote High Hill country of Provence where the lives of the inhabitants are moulded along fiercely passionate lines, features a Cain-and-Abel like struggle between two brothers. Marceau and Ange Jason come from a family renowned for its brutality and are bound together with ties stronger than those of ordinary brotherly love. They spend their lives drinking, wrestling, selling mules and driving the local women to force fodder from the harsh soil. However, the equilibrium of their affection is unbalanced after Marceau kills a rampaging wild horse at a county fair with a single blow and then defeats two renowned Provencal wrestling champions to become the local champion. While the younger siblingâ€™s jealousy boils at his brotherâ€™s exploits and growing fame, his own lust for power is steadily developing. 227p. Bookseller Inventory # 2068701
