Good Morning, Midnightby Jean Rhys
"Jean Rhys is an extremely precise and careful writer who gives the impression, through the voices of her characters, of haphazard and ragged patterns of thought. Her style is marked with ellipses and dashes, with sentences and paragraphs trailing off or ending abruptly. Good Morning, Midnight is a slim novel, but Rhys's language creates space; each sentence resonates on the page, hanging in the reader's mind long after the book has been closed."
Synopses & Reviews
Sasha Jensen has returned to Paris, the city of both her happiest moments and her most desperate. A friend has rescued her from the room in London where she had been trying to drink herself to death. Now her past lies in wait for her in cafés, bars, and dress shops, coming to life again as vividly for the reader as it does for her, blurring all distinctions between nightmare and reality.
The past is not all that looms threateningly on Sasha's horizon. She does not trust the future, even as she knows she must move into it. When she is picked up by a young man, she begins to feel that she is still capable of desires and emotions. Few encounters in fiction have been so brilliantly conceived, and few have come to a more unforgettable end.
