This is a story of family intrigues and physical and mental disintegration. Neglected and humiliated by society, each lives in his private world of near madness. Finally one is helped by a rich relative whilst the other dies of neglect. Montherlant portrays with a mixture of irony and sympathy and a terrifying realism the strange twilight world inhabited by these two characters.
