These four stories, set in Bordeaux and Paris, chart the passionate, tortured life of Thérèse Desqueyroux, and, in spite of the devastation she wrecks, finally affirm the beauty and vitality of the human spirit in the eternal radiance of death.

Of this, his most famous literary creation, Mauriac writes: She took form in my mind as an example of that power, granted to all human beings –no matter how much they seem to be the slaves of a hostile fate– of saying “No” to the law that beats them down...she belongs to that class of human beings (and it is a huge family!) for whom night can end only when life itself ends. All that is asked of them is that they should not resign themselves to the night's darkness.
