Octave Mirbeau, author of The Torture Garden and Diary of a Chambermaid, wrote this scathing novel on the cusp of the twentieth century. Driven mad by modern life, Georges Vasseur leaves for a rest cure, where he encounters corrupt politicians, amnesiac coquettes, cheerfully sadistic killers, imperialist generals, and quack psychiatrists. Hypocrites are eternal, and not much has changed since Mirbeau wrote this acid portrait of his era.

"Octave Mirbeau is the greatest contemporary French writer, and the one who best represents the eternal brilliance of France." --Lev Tolstoy

"A man of justice who has given his heart to the wretched and miserable of this earth." --Emile Zola

About the Author:

Octave Mirbeau (1848-1917) was one of the leading lights of the "Decadent" movement in French literature, as well as one of its most savage parodists; producing works in virtually every genre (reportage, art and literary criticism, travel writing, fiction, and drama), he exploded the boundaries of the nineteenth-century novel, pointing the way to everything from surrealism to gonzo journalism.
