Item description for Inevitable by Louis Couperus...

Cornelie, a 23-year-old divorcee from an upper-class Hague milieu, tries with mixed feelings to begin a new life in Italy. She meets a Dutch painter, Duco, and they move in together, flouting convention. Duco and Cornelie are happy but poor, and their financial position goes from bad to worse. In desperation, Cornelie takes a position as a companion to an American lady in Nice. There, she encounters her ex-husband, and despite initial resistance, she finally succumbs to his continuing power over her.

Louis Couperus was born in the Hague in 1863 and died in Italy in 1923. The Inevitable is considered one of his masterpieces.

Reviews - What do customers think about Inevitable?

Beautiful book  Feb 19, 2007
I buy Pushkin Press books for my 93-year-old mother, who is an avid reader. They are beautifully made with a very legible typeface, but compact, and fit in the palm of her hand. She says she can no longer hold a standard hardbound book because of her arthritis. These books have been ideal for her, as she is a lifelong student of literature.
