Abstract This story of greed and family discord is set, like so much of Mauriac's fiction, in his native Bordeaux: Louis, in the twilight of his life, writes a long letter to his wife and, in the process, the milestones of his life burst to the forefront of his memory-all the irritations, anger, and shame. And to what end? He contemplates disinheriting his children, who are only waiting for him to die so they can get ahold of his money.
