It is though a masterly study of the human condition and Rhys is a sharp and perceptive observer of relationships between men and women and is very good at setting mood. Sasha tries to make it clear that she isn’t wealthy and that she can’t help this young man, whose name is René, but he doesn’t seem to believe her. Not wanting to relive her past life in Paris, she tries to stay busy, making a point to stick to a strict schedule.

Wisdom would probably consist in finding some middle path between these two poles of egotism, but if I had to choose, I guess I’d take Rhys’s route.She was previously living in London and trying to drink herself to death, but a friend couldn’t bear to see her in such a depressing state, so she lent her money and urged her to go to Paris, thinking she needed a change. Sasha, the protagonist of Good Morning, Midnight, incarnates the pathos of all forsaken lovers in the bleak narrative of the intimate experience of loss. Paris, the city of light, goes out modestly, giving way to shabby hotel rooms and superficial descriptions of dead, empty streets where soulless people roam without direction.

I don't remember when I first figured out what social anxiety was, that I had it or that anyone else felt like they couldn't do the simplest things without feeling like total shit about it. Slowly falling to pieces, the aftermath of abandonment is an impoverished existence where there is nothing at all. There is very little in the way of redemptive themes, and the motif of freedom is only fully achieved through the ultimate rejection of human happiness and interpersonal relationships. Reviews of books I have read, cover to cover, and occasional essays on more or less academic topics.This difference reflects gendered expectations of public conduct and social competence, and the relative intolerance of 'eccentric' or mad behaviour for women.
