The Penguin Book of French Short Stories. 1 From Marguerite De Navarre to Marcel
This first volume celebrates the rich tradition of the French short story. Spanning four centuries, it brims with decadent tales, 'bloody tales' and fairy tales, detective stories and war stories, the experimental and the existential. These are stories about the self and the other, the fantastic and the realist, the country and the city, the nation and the colony, told in an eclectic array of voices and styles.
