GUY DE MAUPASSANT (1850-93) was a literary disciple of Flaubert and part of the group of young Naturalistic writers that formed around Zola. In addition to his six novels, which include Bel-Ami (1885) and Pierre et Jean (1888), Maupassant wrote hundreds of short stories, the most famous of which is 'Boule de suif'. By the late 1870s, he began to develop the first signs of syphilis, and in 1891 he was committed to an asylum in Paris, having tried to commit suicide. He died there two years later. DOUGLAS PARMEE is a well-known French translator.See all Product Description

Just a beautifully written story. This is my second time reading it, and I can't wait to read it again in 10 years! Love Maupassant, I would recommend it for sure.Published on Feb. 4 2010 by Marianne Julie Etienne
The novel can make you wonder how the society can be so porous to allow somebody to get from dire poverty to filthy richness. Read morePublished on June 3 2004 by myshiak

Maupassant's characters are more real and colourful than those created by any of the other French naturalists. Bel Ami, his first fill length novel, is simply a joy to read. Read morePublished on June 12 2001 by "stephenmackintosh"
I enjoyed this book very much and readily recognize that it is head and shoulders above so much contemporary fiction -- particularly all this Oprah Winfrey-approved garbage. Read morePublished on Sept. 10 2000
