The man in a hurry /
Paul Morand ; translated from the French by Euan Cameron.
|Main Creator:||Morand, Paul, 1888-1976.|
A feverish classic from one of the modern masters of French prose. No one can keep up with Pierre Niox, the speediest antiques dealer in Paris, although not necessarily the most competent. As he dashes about at a dizzying pace, his impatience becomes too much to bear for those around him; his manservant, his only friend and even his cat abandon him. He begins to find that while he is racing through life, it is passing him by. However, when he falls in love with the languid, unpunctual Hedwige, the man in a hurry has to learn how to slow down.
