Learn More about the Book

Portraying French society during the Third Republic, this story follows the fall of the old guard of the clans of Schoudler and Monnerie. The collapse of banker Noel Schoudler exemplifies the end of the fortunes amassed during the 19th century and the greed of speculators who succumbed to the global financial crisis of 1929. Meanwhile, Urbain de la Monnerie, a blind octogenarian and inhabitant of Mauglaives castle, embodies the decadence of an old aristocracy that is about to disappear. By contrast, nothing seems to stop the rise of upstart Simon Lachaume, a politically cold, cerebral, self-made man. This novel provides an accurate portrayal of public and private French society between wars.

Retratando la sociedad francesa de la Tercera Republica, esta historia sigue la caida de la vieja guardia de los clanes de Schoudler y Monnerie. El colapso del banquero Noel Schoudler ilustra el fin de las fortunas amasadas durante el siglo XIX y la codicia de los especuladores que sucumbieron a la crisis financiera mundial de 1929. Mientras tanto, Urbain de la Monnerie, octogenario ciego y habitante del castillo Mauglaives, encarna la decadencia de la aristocracia que esta a punto de desaparecer. Por el contrario, nada parece detener el ascenso del advenedizo Simon Lachaume, un hombre politicamente frio, cerebral y hecho a si mismo. Esta novela ofrece un retrato fiel de la sociedad francesa publica y privada entre las guerras.
