"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

"Taking as his setting the glamour and heady sophistication of fin-de-siecle. Parisian salon society, Proust here presents a series of sketches and short stories depicting the lives, love, manners and motivations of a host of characters. Amorous entanglements, idle vanities and feigned morality are all viewed with a characteristically knowing eye. By turns cuttingly satirical and bitterly moving, Proust's portrayals are layered with imagery and feeling, whether they be of the aspiring Bouvard and Pecuchet, the deluded Madame de Breyves, or of Baldassare Silvande saturated with regret, memory and tragic understanding in the face of death."--Jacket

"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
