Vagadu: The Adventures of Catherine Crachat II
Pierre Jean Jouve's novels Hecate and Vagadu trace the carnal and emotional liaisons of Catherine Crachat, a Parisian actress. Vagadu continues the saga of Catherine Crachat begun in Hecate. Having returned to Paris after a sojourn in Vienna that has been fraught with emotional entanglements and the taint of death, Catherine seeks new relationships that will give her life meaning, but she finds that no one is who he or she appears to be. In an emotional tumult, events - both real and imagined - spiral out of her control, and Catherine must reconcile herself to a past in which love and death, debasement and the search for divinity, merge and divide in haunting, kaleidoscopic ways.
