Suzanne RENAUD,
Correspondance (1947-1959).

This book includes all the correspondence between writer Henri Pourrat and Suzanne Renaud and Bohuslav Reynek: forty-four letters from Pourrat, forty-four from Renaud and two from Reynek. It begins in the aftermath of a war that led to the separation of the authors’ homelands, France and Czechoslovakia, by the Iron Curtain and ends with Pourrat’s death. The letters attest to a long-distance epistolary friendship between the Reyneks in Petrkov, Bohemia and Pourrat in Ambert, Auvergne under the best and worst circumstances. Far from literary life, in their houses open to nature, the authors wrote about their emotions. “What emerges is a sort of deeply felt and expressed poetry of places that provides a glimpse into what Henri Pourrat calls ‘the true homeland’, where they found common ground.” (Annette Pourrat, preface).
