Collected here for the first time, Roth's essays form an unrivaled portrait of France in the late 1920s and 1930s - a society at a twentieth-century crossing point - resolute in its desire to preserve a past that was already crumbling while at the same time drawn to the seductive rhythms of urban life. Roth describes a world where the center could not hold - a portrait of a country unknowingly barreling toward social collapse and political anarchy."--Jacket." ;
