Marcello Rubini, a frustrated 'serious' writer, does tabloid journalism to make ends meet. He spends every evening in Via Veneto awaiting the next scandal, party invitation, or sexual proposition.

Marcello is consumed by self-doubt and unable to enjoy the success he has, and so stumbles on, dreaming of attaining the elusive sweet life

Paul Claudel : biographie by Marie-Josèphe Guers( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in French and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La biographie critique claudélienne est considérable à la mesure de l'immensité de l'oeuvre que ne dispensent pas intégralement les six "Pléiade" et les divers recueils de correspondance. Cet ouvrage a l'avantage d'être la première biographie totale dont la consistance est garantie par une thèse de doctorat, un appareil critique et un tableau synoptique imposants. L'auteur, tout en suivant l'ordre chronologique, a voulu surtout esquisser un portrait de l'intérieur à partir de l'oeuvre. Le résultat probant et honnête est d'une lecture passionnante

Dying on the road to St. Jacques is dying like the heroes in "Song of Roland."
