Set in the Charente country and the Paris music halls of the 1930s, The Voyage tells of the travails of one man’s quest for lovelove for a woman, and love for France. Available once more to a modern readership, the story that is widely regarded as Charles Morgan’s finest work is that rare thing: a novel with appeal across ages and tastes. It is at once romance and adventure, a hymn to France.
