'Julian Green has chosen as his theme one of the gravest of moral problems and explored it with the greatest of subtlety: the guilt and responsibility of a man who through his nature is forced to live a lie that cruelly affects the life of others. In the natural world of men and women, he is the transgressor, caught in an insoluble dilemma.'
A tight, bright copy.
