A look through a window, so to speak, at life in a tightly knit rural commune in the south west of France; time, more or less, the present. An earthy, unembellished "tale of country folk" with passion and hate . . . loyalty and betrayal . . . there in abundance, and all woven into a back- cloth of characters and that darkish comedy that we might identify as being . . . typically French . . . think of the works of Tati and Fernandel, among others, that show this so well.
Apart from proper names there will be found no French in this novel . . .no pretentious foriegn word dropping to interupt the flow of the narative in what is, after all, a simple story to be simply understood.
