This slight volume (perhaps fifty or sixty pages) appeared in
France in 1939, and again in a revised edition in 1957. Some twenty
sketches illustrate her theory of tropisms - those indefinable
responses which underlie the most commonplace conversations,
gestures, "harmless appearances." Responses which may be thoughts,
or feelings, of an unidentified he, or she, or they; he (a teacher)
prying into the mysteries of his more illustrious subjects; she
waiting, motionlessly on a bed, or (another she) rummaging,
appropriating, everything, everywhere; they, a family moving to the
city; housewives nattering in a tearoom; an old couple, who have
nothing more to hope for in life beyond letting time go
by....Tropisms - sometimes the most ineffable of emanations, and
while the book is rather incidental, it does show the author's gift
with this particular kind of subliminal demonstration. (Kirkus
