About this book
Concentrates on stories set in the contemporary Paris of the 1880s and 1890s, giving this newly translated anthology coherence and focus.
This newly translated selection of 36 of the best decadent tales from the French fin-de-siecle brings together some the most exotic, stylized, and cerebral literature in the French language. Hilarious and horrifying, these extraordinary, corrosive little tales cast a cold eye on the modern world. Superbly translated and introduced by Stephen Romer.
