Emmaus PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Emmaus free pdf Four teenage boys stand on a bridge in the rain, staring down at a fast-flowing river. They're not talking- they're all thinking about the beautiful and enigmatic Andre--only a few months before, she had piled on every piece of clothing she owned and jumped into the black water below. Since then, the boys have been obsessed with the girl who tried to kill herself--the girl who takes men one after another into the bathroom of the local cinema, and who is forcing these devout Catholic boys to question everything they know about devotion, desire, and sin.
A haunting novel from one of the masters of contemporary European fiction, "Emmaus" brilliantly evokes the perils and uncertainties of youth.
