"I am no saint; I have known many men, and I know, by experience, all the madness, all the vileness, of which they are capable. But a man like Monsiuer?" –– from THE DIARY OF A CHAMBERMAID The famous anarchist and art critic Octave Mirbeau (1848–1917) inspired not one but two films (from Jean Renoir and Louis Bunuel) with his often forgotten classic THE DIARY OF A CHAMBERMAID. Telling the scandalous story of Celestine R., a fisherman's daughter with a taste for men, Mirbeau reveals that "when one tears away the veils and shows them naked, people's souls give off such a pungent smell of decay." The Naughty French Novel Series is comprised of great poets and writers of the past who, as the French are wont to do, tried their hand at erotic fiction and in turn created classics in the genre. Series editor John Baxter, the author of WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE PARIS, will contribute an introductory essay to each book, detaiing the lives of the authors, the social mores of the times, and the publication histories of each book.
