Most of this palace used to be above ground. Previous explorers have wiggled through a maze of narrow tunnels to try to survey what they could.
The city, which was almost empty during August, now is filling up again. It is being replenished. The restaurants are all reopening, the shops. People are coming back from the country, the sea, from trips on roads all jammed with cars. The station is very crowded. There are children, dogs, families with old pieces of luggage bound by straps.
Set in France in the early s, the sad and tender story concerns the erotic affair of American middle-class college drop-out Philip Dean and a young French girl, Anne-Marie, as witnessed by a self-consciously unreliable narrator. The unnamed narrator freely admits that much of his observation is in fact his own fantasy of the couple, and includes a number of sexually-explicit descriptions of their day-to-day existence as he imagines it. Many of the story's events take place in the town of Autun in Burgundy. The book is generally regarded by critics as a modern classic. The book feels utterly true.
