From the writer who created a sensation in the 1950s,by a debut novel "Bonjour Tristesse" - 'Good Morning Sadness',made into a film by Otto Preminger.
'Those Without Shadows' is the story of a year in the lives of nine worldlywise Parisians,a well-bred,bad-behaving group best described as Cafe Society (in a place where The Cafe really stands for something).
It is about many things,but because it is French it is mostly about the sinful waywardness of man (and woman) kind.
A tale of life (and especially love) among the Beat Generation in Paris.
