Story of 2 Parisian working-class sisters at the end of the 19thc " A powerful and outstanding work." Gustave Flaubert "The Vatard Sisters brought Huysmans to the notice of the public and revealed him as a man who could paint word-pictures which put earlier practitioners like Gautier and Edmond de Goncourt in the shade ... The novel is a story of two working-class sisters, but the main protagonist is Paris, suburban Paris, the Paris of railway stations, cheap restaurants and café-concerts ... and the passages that describe the music-halls and crowds of the Avenue de Maine and the Boulevard Saint Mich

"At the novel's center is Durtal, a writer obsessed with the life of one of the blackest figures in history, Gilles de Rais --- child murderer, sadist, necrophile, and practitioner of all the black arts.

68 editions published between 1882 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in late-nineteenth-century Paris, Downstream is the story of civil servant Jean Folantin, a man beset with melancholy induced by middle-aged loneliness, nihilism, and toiling for a wage that scarcely allows him to subsist. His days are composed of office drudgery; in the evenings he searches in vain for a decent meal. His nights are spent alone." "Whether Downstream is the political tale of a man's enslavement by poverty or, instead, a psychological tale of his reluctance to genuinely invest hope in anything that actually matters, it is J.K. Huysmans in a foul and visionary mood."--Jacket
