The Desert of Love traces the psychological and physical torments of a father and son and the woman with whom they both fall in love. Through these three characters, Mauriac crafts a captivating account of human desire, crowned with a subtly brilliant conclusion. In 1926, The Desert of Love was named winner of the Grand Prix du roman de l’Académie française.
“We choose the one path open to us, but it was never designed to lead us to our hearts’ desire.”
