In interwar Paris, Marya is trying to make something of her life, but after losing her Polish husband and meeting an English couple reality starts to crumble. This novel was originally published in 1928 under the title Postures. Jean Rhys's first novel, a heartbreaking and disturbingly intimate portrayal of an isolated woman in ParisSet in a superficially romantic, between-wars Paris, Quartet is a poignant tale of a lonely woman. Set against a background of winter-wet streets, Pernod in smoky cafes and cheap hotel rooms with mauve- flowered wallpaper, Marya tries to make something substantial of her life in order to withstand the unreality of her surroundings. Alone, her Polish husband in prison, she is taken up by an English couple who slowly overwhelm her with their passions.
