THE DEPTHS AND THE HEIGHTS

An addition to the monumental work, Men of Good Will, but much less closely linked to character and plot of the others, than its predecessors. The story revolves around a variety of high class pimps and procuresses, of men seeking sexual excitement, and women ready to be amenable. Oh, there are other things -- inner politics of election to the Academy, city politics, etc. But, all in all, it is a pretty low tale, very French in the telling, and contributing little to the rounded picture. The period is just before the war.
