Nouvelles orientales: My pick for the month of February

The book of the month of February 2022 is Nouvelles orientales by Marguerite Yourcenar. To join the Book Club next month sign up now!

Here’s my intro:

“These novels published in 1938 includes ten short stories of oriental inspiration, which are tales and legends. Passionate and fascinating, Yourcenar invites us to immerse ourselves in the imagination of the Balkans, China, and even Japan. The short stories are easy to read. Marguerite Yourcenar was inspired by tales or oriental miscellaneous facts to write them with her own style. The themes are universal: lost love, regret, transcendence, redemption, and heroism. “

I won’t tell you more, Oriental Tales is a collection that you must read once in your life!
