Louis, a wretchedly unhappy multi-millionaire, all but personifies evil. Toward the end of his life, seeking to uncover the cause of his unhappiness, he commits to paper his whole bitter story: his indulgent but affection-starved childhood; his first love; the trivial misunderstanding that festered until it poisoned their entire married life and the lives of their children; the old miser's struggle to disinherit his family; and finally, the powerful climax, with divine grace vying to the very end to pierce the evil encrusting Louis' soul

548 editions published between 1924 and 2013 in 23 languages and held by 3,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fran?ois Mauriac's masterpiece and one of the greatest Catholic novels, Th?r?se Desqueyroux is the haunting story of an unhappily married young woman whose desperation drives her to thoughts of murder. Mauriac paints an unforgettable portrait of spiritual isolation and despair, but he also dramatizes the complex realities of forgiveness, grace, and redemption. Set in the countryside outside Bordeaux, in a region of overwhelming heat and sudden storms, the novel's landscape reflects the inner world of Th?r?se, a figure who has captured the imaginations of readers for generations."--Publisher's website

"Ruiné par sa maîtresse, Oscar Révolou, un grand notaire bordelais, se suicide. Cette mort fissure la façade en même temps qu'elle révèle les fondations de deux familles estimées. Quand l'argent se retire des maisons bourgeoises, les cœurs apparaissent à sec, et ce n'est pas beau à voir. Une véritable banqueroute de l'âme, à laquelle n'échappent, in extremis, que deux figures du sacrifice : Rose, la répudiée christique, et Pierre, le jeune poète révulsé ... Roman de la damnation, de la prédestination, les Chemins de la mer constitue une sorte de sommet de la noirceur et du pessimisme mauriaciens."--Publisher's description
