Tallien: A Brief Romance

Tallien: A Brief Romance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tallien begins as the story of an estranged father and son. The relationship is strained over the years by the father's efforts to organize restaurant workers during the Depression. After 30 years of separation, the son visits his fathers deathbed and offers the story of Jean Lambert Tallien, leader of the French Revolution. The book skillfully slips from the present day story of father and son to the story of Tallien's rise and fall. His role and position in the French Revolution is jeopardized when he meets and falls in love with Terese de Fontenay, the widow of a recently beheaded nobleman. Eventually, Talliens passion for Terese sways him into joining Napoleans forces.

Synopsis:

In Tallien, a novel that shuttles gracefully between past and present, a young man visits his dying father — formerly a Depression-era union organizer and activist — after a 30-year estrangement. At his bedside, the son relates the tale of Jean Lambert Tallien, a key figure in the French Revolution, who is torn between his egalitarian ideals and his love for an aristocratic woman. In skillful prose, acclaimed author Frederic Tuten uses the historical and contemporary narratives to explore the tensions between passions of the heart and of the mind.
