Product Details


“Through the melodrama cuts the fresh frankness of Olivia’s all-consuming ardor, and in her Strachey captures perfectly the urgency, excitement, and fire of a first adult crush.”
The Paris Review

“A little masterpiece.” 
—André Gide

“A remarkable novel . . . It has a strange combination of strength and delicacy.” 
The Times (London)

“Written in a continual tremor of excitement . . . A novel of meltings, glowings, softenings and glooms, which declares its delicacies boldly, and announces the author’s adherence to spontaneity and romance with some question-begging flourishes: ‘How can one . . . write without laying bare one’s soul?’” 
London Review of Books
