Where I Left My Soul

by Jerome Ferrari

This is a descent into hell. There is no other way of describing it. It is not an easy read. But it is not one that any thinking person should run away from. If you wish to avoid your own dark night of the soul, read this book to get a vision of the pitfalls that you must avoid at all costs. Do not under any circumstances leave your soul in the same place as Capitaine Degorce.


I remember you, mon capitaine, I remember you clearly, and I can still picture distinctly the dark confusion and despair that filled your eyes when I told you he had hanged himself. It was a cold spring morning, mon capitaine, it was so long ago and yet for a brief moment, there in front of me I caught a brief glimpse of the old man you have finally become.
