When her husband manages to cadge an invitation to a grand ball at the Ministry of Education, Mathilde refuses to attend unless she can look the part. She obtains a splendid gown, but then demands a necklace to go with it.Thus she borrows a diamond necklace from a friend and so their troubles begin. This volume also includes two more Maupassant classics: The Piece of String , in which an indignant villager is wrongly accused of stealing a pocketbook, and Mouche , a poignant portrait of five merry bargemen and the woman who joins them on their journeys up and down the Seine, loving each of them freely.
