Description - The Past by Alan Pauls

A novel that is brilliant enough to raise itself effortlessly above and beyond the level of the vices it portrays- strange art and reckless passion, cocaine, excessive exercise and other forms of addiction. Fabienne Dum, Le Monde R mini splits up with his girlfriend of twelve years, Sof a. The parting is initially amicable and he moves on, carefree, with a new zest for life. Hungry to make up for lost time and keen to forget the past, he finds a younger girlfriend and starts using cocaine. of a, however, finds herself unable to let go, and continues to reappear on R mini s horizon. As hard as R mini tries to forget, Sof a will not let him. Though the apparently idyllic relationship is over, their love has not died, merely taken on a different form. As time passes and their paths continue to cross, the past festers and torments them, like an infection.
