The Atheist's Mass by Honore de Balzac
I mentioned the name of Balzac above.
Around the same time that I read Zeldin’s book, I received the story-book The Atheist's Mass by Honore de Balzac.
That is an outstanding and unforgettable story indeed! Again, about how a chance encounter between two men changes the life of both.
This story is available here.
