Product Description

The Unknown Sea recounts the fate of the Revolu family after its patriarch commits suicide due to financial ruin. Oscar Revolu's death throws his family, who were previously set to live successful and happy lives, into humiliation and misery. His wife Lucienne is left to maintain some sort of order at the estate without the assistance of their sons—Julien becomes a neurotic loner, and Denis is plagued by the phantom of his father's death even as he approaches adulthood. Their daughter Rose, however, bears the brunt of their humiliation, as her destitute circumstances jeopardize her engagement and the prospect of a secure future. The Unknown Sea provides a near-perfect précis of Mauriac’s matchless ability to depict human freedom—and frailty—in the face of the infinite mystery of existence.
