The Glory of the Pythres by Richard Millet

Set in the villages and valleys of Frances mountainous provinces,The Glory of the Pythresfollows the fortunes--or rather, the colossal misfortunes--of the Pythres (pronounced aspitres,the French word for clowns or buffoons). Of peasant stock, suspicious, taciturn, mulish, stubborn, the Pythres live a grim existence, locked up with their dead through long winters and passing on their problems like heirlooms to their children. They, like their neighbors, are Others, their culture passing away, their language barely comprehensible to other Frenchmen, their lives defined by tribal hatreds with motives that have long since vanished into history.
