it was ok

I gotta say, I am not liking this so far. I've gotten through the first story, and that was a slog. The writing is good, but I just can't bring myself to care about anybody in this book. I honestly have no desire to find out what happens to this woman.
What gets me is how fascinated with her Mauriac was. He wrote about her many times throughout his life. I almost want to read the other stories in this book (I guess it's a collection) to see if it ever becomes apparent why he cared so much. I can see being interested for like 50 pages or so.
