Albertine (Rose novel)
|Media type||Print Paperback)|
The beautiful orphan Albertine comes into contact with the austere young Marcel at a Normandy seaside hotel, whilst on holiday with friends. She soon becomes embroiled in a destructive affair with the young man, trapping them both in his Paris apartment. His jealousy and her strong will and bisexual attraction to others cause both unhappiness. A gynocentric revisiting of Proust, it is a feminist re-imagining, giving Albertine a voice she has been denied.
