Mauriac paints an unforgettable portrait of spiritual isolation and despair, but he also dramatizes the complex realites of forgiveness, grace, and redemption.Set in the countryside outside Bordeaux, in a region of overwhelming heat and sudden storms, the novels landscape reflects the inner world of Therese, a figure who has captured the imaginations of readers for generations.Raymond N. MacKenzies new translation, the first since 1947, captures the poetic lyricism of Mauriacs prose as well as the intensity of his stream-of-consciousness narrative. MacKenzie provides notes and a biographical and interpretive introduction to help readers better appreciate the mastery of Francois Mauriac, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1952.
