Her Lover, Paperback / softback Book

Her Lover Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

Handsome, worldly and intelligent, Solal holds a position of enviable power in 1930s Geneva.

But as Under-Secretary-General of the League of Nations, he has become bitterly disillusioned by international affairs and the self-serving people who surround him.

His one hope for redemption is through love - and he embarks on the audacious seduction of Ariane, the beautiful, daydreaming wife of a dull-witted, social-climbing employee of the League. In Her Lover, Albert Cohen created a world humming with the many vivid and eccentric voices of its wonderfully observed characters.

Brilliantly inventive and baroquely detailed, this magnificent novel is a merciless satire of middle-class manners and ambitions, and of the Byzantine machinations of global politics.
