"Candy Story" recounts a turbulent year in the life of Mia, a young woman whose apparent calm is perpetually threatened by inner doubts and outer catastrophe. Her modest dreams of happiness are dashed by the deaths of her mother, old friends, and her lover. Mia is a talented writer, the author of an autobiographical novel. Now, assailed by calamity and misfortune, she struggles with writer's block, confounded--at least for the moment--by the senseless world around her. "Candy Story" is the fourth novel by Marie Redonnet. Translations of the first three--"Hotel Splendid," "Forever Valley," and "Rose Mellie Rose"--are also available from the University of Nebraska Press. In its unadorned prose and passionate focus on the inner life of a young woman, this fourth novel is unmistakably allied to the earlier ones. It will enthrall Redonnet's admirers and win new ones. Born in Paris in 1947, Redonnet taught for a number of years in a suburban "lycee" before deciding to pursue a writing career full time. Since her volume of poetry "Le Mort & Cie" appeared in 1985, she has published four novels, a novella, numerous short stories, and three dramatic works.
