Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This novel was originally presented as an autobiographical novel, but certain elements do not seem true to life.

--The hero falls in love at first sight, and the two continue to remember each other until the bitter end.

--The heroine arouses the passion of 6 men through no effort on her own part.

--The hero and heroine live an irresponsible lifestyle without ever putting in a single day of hard work, yet their friends continue to support them without a word of complaint.

--The hero and heroine escape to a sandy wasteland within hiking distance of New Orleans. The novelist could never have been there because there is no such place.

This novel aroused operatic settings by 3 composers.
How, I don't know.

It's not the translator's fault. She provides a helpful introduction and helpful footnotes.
