Description -

The theme of this novel by Roger Vercel (whose "Tides of Mont St. Michel" won two literary awards in France and was a Book of the Month Club selection here) is a young man's coming of age. Unlike most treatments of the subject, it is not the demise of youthful illusions that besets the hero, but the crack-up of his most cherished skepticisms.
