All of the characters in this work are minor characters in Joyce's Ulysses. Yet, this is another day, another event, and the relation to Joyce is only one of names, or is it?
This is work of frank sex and violence. The heroine? A nymphette. Who wins and are the revolutionaries really bad people? Queneau leaves that question open, prefering to unfurl the problematics of human relations in what can only be described as an unusual circumstance.
Read it.

Queneau Rocks April 23 2013
By Pam Kray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I first read We Always Treat Women Too Well in 1993. I had read other novels and compositions of writer, Raymond Queneau, and this one did not disappoint. On second reading, 20 years later, this book is even better. Sophisticated humor running through social and political satire--in the guise of what could be a movie like Dog Day Afternoon. Keep printing this book. It is gold.
Revolt(ing) or Reveal(ing)? April 2 2008
By Dick Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Hilarious! There is forcible entry (maybe?); murder (war?); and an analysis of fashion.

The situational morality was the keystone of the book. Should I? Will she? If she doesn't tell did it really happen? Did it really happen?

Stereotypes abound in the characters. I have never been closer to Ireland than wading along the coast of Maine, but I felt I was there. I could see the action as it was being described.

This is a marvelous short read that ended way to soon, but couldn't have been made longer without ruining it.

Irish revolution viewed from a bank... Sept. 11 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Irish revolutionnaries in Dublin. They try to invest the city. We follow a group of them in a bank. And a young woman trapped in the "lavatories" (in english in the text) fiancée of an english captain... A story of innocent people who tempted to enter the history. Written in a fresh and joyful language.
For more information this book is a part of another which title is "the private diary of Sally Mara" which is really worthwhile to read.
