About the Author


George Sand was born Amandine-Aurore Lucile Dupin in Paris in 1804 and brought up at Nohant, her grandmother's country home. In 1822 Sand married Baron Casimir Dudevant but left him and their disastrous marriage to seek a better life in Paris. Her most famous novels portray the struggles of women against social constraints, especially marriage. Legendary for her numerous love affairs with such prominent figures as Prosper Merimee, Alfred de Musset and Frederic Chopin, Sand was also a celebrated writer whose works influenced Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Flaubert and Proust.

Praise For…


"Its symbolist exploration of young love... is endearingly eccentric." - The Times

"Cracked geodes. Circular waterfalls. Eskimos on sleds crossing polar seas. An extraordinary visual experience in the form of an impossible love story that consistently defies its own description. A meditation on beauty told through a fascination with form." -Janice Kerbel, Frieze
