About the Book

Mood Indigo: A Novel

First published in 1947 as FROTH ON THE DAYDREAN, MOOD INDIGO captures the melancholy romance of mid-century Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
The story is simple: Boy meets girl; boy marries girl; girl falls ill on their honeymoon with a water lily on the lung, which can only be treated by being surrounded by flowers; boy goes broke desperately trying to keep his true love alive.
