A ballad of love by Frederic Prokosch ( Book )

"A novel about solitude, about men wandering in the night of the absurd and feeling the 'nausea' of existence. It is a story of unrequited and tragic love, in which the characters roam from America to Europe and Africa in the years prior to and at the start of World War II ... While existentialist in mood, it is not a gloomy book. Prokosch throws a veil of subtle beauty over everything. It clothes New York, Paris, Venice and Tangiers in mystery, hides their squalor in compassion, assuages the solitude of men."--Jeanne Mercier
