Set in the nouveau riche Paris of society women, prostitutes, and playboys in the Normandy countryside and on the French Riviera where Maupassant had lived, the thirty-four short stories in this volume are among the most darkly humorous and brilliant in French literature. They focus on the complexity of close relationships between lovers, as in the poignant fantasy A Parisian Affair or the touchingly ironical The Jewels between siblings, as in At Sea and between former partners, as in Encounter. They reveal two sides of human nature its grace and generosity and also, as in Boule de Suif, its greed and hypocrisy. Piquant and varied, Maupassants stories lay humanity bare with deft wit and devastating honesty. Sin Miless vibrant new translation is accompanied by an Introduction discussing Maupassants stpries as a reflection of the rapidly changing beliefs of his society The NecklaceMaupassants famous story not included in the previous Penguin Classics editionappears in this volume Includes chronology, notes, and suggestions for further reading
