Excerpt From The Book

A strange melancholy pervades me to which A I hesitate to give the grave and beautiful name of sadness.

In the past the idea of sadness always appealed to me, now I am almost ashamed of its complete egoism.

I had known boredom, regret, and at times remorse, but never sadness. Today something envelops me like a silken web, enervating and soft, which isolates me.

That summer I was seventeen and perfectly happy. I lived with my father, and there was also Elsa, who for the time being was his mistress.

I must explain this situation at once, or it might give a false impression. My father was forty and had been a widower for fifteen years.

He was young for his age, full of vitality and possibilities, and when I left school two years before, I soon noticed that he lived with a woman.

It took me rather longer to realize that it was a different one every six months. But gradually his charm, my new easy life, and my own disposition led me to accept it.

He was a frivolous man, clever at business, always curious, quickly bored, and attractive to women.

It was easy to love him, for he was kind, generous, gay, and full of affection for me. I cannot imagine a better or a more amusing friend.

At the beginning of the summer, he even went so far as to ask me whether I would object to Elsa’s company during the holidays.

She was tall. ed-haired girl, seu usual and worldly, gentle, rather simple, and unpretentious; one might have come across her any day in the studios and bars of the Champs-Elysées.
