Detailed Product Description
1995. 159 pp. A highly regarded set of short stories set in the Alps; sequel to Flammes de Pierre. Anne Sauvy's acclaimed collections are loosely based on alpinism (mainly in the French ranges) and Parisian academia, with metamorphic, gothis horror and philosophical plotlines as well. Her style gives hints of De Maupassant and Poe, but similarities to Somerset Maughan and Saki are also apparent. The always sharp critic Robin Campbell commented: "Fine writing, no frills, always a denouement and often a twist... easily the best mountain fiction I have come across." Paperback, new condition.
