Our Lady of the Flowers by Jean Genet ( Book )
155 editions published between 1943 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 2,486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Novel by Jean Genet, written while he was in prison for burglary and published in 1944 in French as Notre-Dame des fleurs. The novel and the author were championed by many contemporary writers, including Jean-Paul Sartre and Jean Cocteau, who helped engineer a pardon for Genet. A wildly imaginative fantasy of the Parisian underworld, the novel tells the story of Divine, a male prostitute who consorts with thieves, pimps, murderers, and other criminals and who has many sexual adventures. Written in lyrical, dreamlike prose, the novel affirms a new moral order, one in which criminals are saints, evil is glorified, and conventional taboos are freely violated." --THE MERRIAM-WEBSTER ENCYCLOPEDIA OF LITERATURE
