No other author has imparted so much beauty and integrity to so modest an existence. Flauberts great saint endures loss after loss by embracing the rich, true rhythms of life: the comfort of domesticity, the solace of the Church, and the depth of memory. This novella showcases Flauberts perfectly honed realism: a delicate counterpoint of daily events with their psychological repercussions.
