See previous entry for how I came to purchase this book.

See the films of Robert Bresson. Now!

Mouchette begins:

The dark west wind, the sea wind, was already scattering the voices in the darkness. It toyed with them a moment and then lifted them all together, dispersing them with an angry roar. The voice of Mouchette had just heard hovered in the air a long time, like a dead leaf floating interminably.
