The two novels in this volume are early works, written in 1922 and 1923 respectively, and they are allied in mood and setting. Both are studies of that concentrated family feeling, undeviatingly bent on self-interest, which crushes any emotional weakness on the part of individuals born or married into the iron circle of bourgeois society in south-west France.
