9780140184273: Villa des Roses (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)

A tragi-comedy of manners acted out almost entirely within the walls of a small pension or boarding house in late 19th century Paris, which is run by an appalling Dutch couple. The novel consists of a series of cameo scenes that are both funny and cruel.

Review:

'Elsschot is full of subtle feeling and his style is highly economical and lucid...a sophisticated, parodic, tender realist of genius' -- Martin Seymour-Smith

'Packed with bizarre incidents and even more bizarre characters…black, certainly, but brilliantly comic as well. A rough-cut gem’ -- Ham and High
