Guy de Maupassant is revered for his naturalistic fiction, which brilliantly captures flesh-and-blood characters as it evokes the most telling details of everyday life.

With an immense thirst for power, Georges is not above an almost gleeful use of wealthy mistresses to achieve his ends.

Maupassant in American
A North American translation and North American accent are barriers to accessing Maupassant's novel.
