Les Diaboliques/The She Devils Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Upon its initial publication in 1874, "Les diaboliques" was immediately declared a danger to public morality, and all the copies of the book were seized on the orders of the Ministry of Justice. Such scandal guaranteed immediate success; D'Aurevilly's evident mastery of prose fiction and his influence on later writers has since established the book as a classic of French letters. Six tales dedicated to the proposition that, as Irwin writes, "those who have the style to carry off their vices have also the right to do so."
