Written between 1934 and 1942, moving from the drawing rooms of pre-war Paris to the lives of men and women in wartime France,these ten stories show : a keen eye for the details of social class; the tensions between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives; the manners and mannerisms of the French bourgeoisie; questions of religion and personal identity.
