KIRKUS REVIEW

Skillful and penetrating study of Villiers-Bernard- done in a series of fl backs of a life devoted to the pursuit of wealth. Stunned by losing more money than in the crash of the French market just before the war, Villiers-Bernard his childhood and youth, early loves and mistresses, his business career, his holl his wife and her faithlessness- and in conclusion he realizes that even when he rich he was poor -- and that his neighbors are leading an equally futile existence. lease out of a window just a little too far- and takes the only way out...Specialized market for the disenchanted young intellectual. Winner Prix Interallie.
