These stories--poignant scrutinies of social pretension, wicked tales of lust and love, and harrowing examinations of terror and madness--display the full genius of Guy de Maupassant in an enthralling new translation by Joachim Neugroschel. They reveal Maupassant's remarkable range, his technical perfection, his sexual realism, and his ability to create whole worlds and sum up intricate universes of feeling in a few pages.
About the Author
Praise For The Necklace and Other Tales…
“Slyly intelligent, engaging, hyper-observant of human nature with all its glories, foibles, and fragile pretense, Maupassant’s stories are as relevant today as when they were first written.” —Elizabeth Berg
