Staff Recommendations

I sent some advance copies out, and a little bookstore in Hudson, which will be featuring The Torrent in their window display in October, has relayed to me some comments from their booksellers. Here's one:

It is in their courage in bearing the intolerable relationship to the Supreme Being that these characters recognize and choose each other. Their ethics is manifestly “beyond sex” (hors-sexe), so much so that I would like to give it the accent that Maupassant provides by enunciating somewhere in his work the strange term ‘Horla,’ or, in Milutis’ case ‘The Torrent.’
