Thanks for telling us about the problem. The story of a remote village that comes near to dying out and madness, this is a great book. I rfgain no idea who he was, but I was drawn to them by force.

On that plateau which was so flat, so extensive, and so well spread out under the sun and the wind, you could be comfortable only when seated.

Oui bon, il faut le lire pour comprendre!

It was almost like an Adam and Eve story, except backwards – the couple go from savagery and desolation into peace and fertility. Stepping into any of his books, but especially this one, is like embarking on a genetic recoding of one’s self.
