Human Traces – Sebastian Faulks

Human Traces is Sebastian Faulks’ fictional exploration of the quest to find a cure for insanity during the late nineteenth, early twentieth century. Told through the lives of two young men, who meet in Brittany whilst in their teens and who forge a firm friendship focused around gaining a better understanding of the range and causes of what was then called alienism.

The two main leads allow us to follow the two main approaches, psychiatry and psychoanalysis, and their evolution from the teachings of Charcot, Darwin and others.

Falco, Helena and big bump, together with smitten Albia and oblivious Aulus, travel to Alexandria for a taste of Egypt’s ancient culture.

As sightseeing meets scrolls in the Great Library, the holiday plan goes AWOL when the Librarian dies after dinner hosted by elusive Uncle Fulvius and his gentleman friend, Cassius.

Chocabloc of truisms.
