Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A prostitute, her pimp and her brother are locked in an unholy triangle of terror in Perversity, Francis Carco's stunning and sordid story set in the slums of Paris.

Translated by Jean Rhys, called by the critic A. Alvarez "the best English novelist," Carco's amazing and unsettling story of lust and murder was vilified upon publication as a novel "in which the Marquis de Sade would have reveled." But all who read Perversity will be gripped by its stark revelations of twisted desires, its power, its keen penetration into the souls of abandoned women and men.

Synopsis:

A lonely man crazed by love!

About the Author

Francis Carco (1888–1958) was awarded the Grand Prix of the Académie Française, and he became a member of the Académie Goncourt. Carco was known as the poet of shadows, the champion of Paris low-life. The mileu of artists and criminals, pimps and prostitutes and drug addicts became Carc's special province.
