The frustrated wife of a French-Tunisian plantation owner,
a mysterious older woman, a world weary tomboy, an
unhappy mistress, a Parisian factory worker destined for
tragedy, an acrobat turned cabaret sensation – these are
the women whose lives are linked by their relationship
with one man – Ștefan Valeriu.
Divided into four separate stories connected by one man,
Women takes us from Ștefan’s amorous entanglements at
an Alpine lake resort, to his life in Bucharest and Paris, as
each of the women in his life opens up new worlds for
him. Women is a hymn to love in all its forms, romantic
or platonic, sometimes reckless, often glorious and
always, ultimately, ephemeral.

«'..these concise stories... showcase Sebastian's brilliant eye for emotional detail.' 'It's an edgy account of sexuality, desire, and the strictures of contemporary relationships... a compelling portrait of desire in its many convoluted manifestations.'--Kirkus Reviews "Kirkus Reviews" "Nothing I have read is more affecting than Mihail Sebastian's magnificent, haunting 1934 novel, For Two Thousand Years."--Phillipe Sands "The Guardian" He wonderfully captures the atmosphere of prewar Romania in all its complexity, all the beauty and the horror... I love Sebastian for his lightness, for his wit..."--John Banville "BBC4" 'His prose is like something Chekov might have written - the same modesty, candour, and subtleness of observation.'--Arthur Miller»
