QUI EST MONSIEUR AMBIVALENCE?
Set in a small village in France, the story revolves around an American man attempting to sit quietly in a room by himself for one hour, a method promoted by the 17th century philosopher Blaise Pascal as the prescription for all of mankind's ills. Tempted by almost everything -- fine wines, the grandeur of French cuisine, the beauty of the French countryside, contemplations of the sublime and the ridiculous -- our hero soldiers on in pursuit of his special brand of solitude and uncertainty, desapite the distractions of neighbors and a highly intelligent female companion.
Author Jean-Pierre Bezoux says of the book, "Lovable and exasperating, a courageous weakling, Monsieur Ambivalence is a friend to all of us who cannot seem to live with ourselves, but who cannot stop hoping to believe that someday we can."
