Against the grain À rebours by J.-K Huysmans( Book )
107 editions published between 1922 and 2013 in English and held by 3,688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Against Nature was fated to be a novel like no other. Resisting the models of classic nineteenth-century fiction, it focuses on the attempts of its anti-hero, the hypersensitive neurotic and aesthete, Des Esseintes, to escape Paris and the vulgarity of modern life
A rebours by J.-K Huysmans( Book )
341 editions published between 1884 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La 4e de couverture indique : "La Bible de l'esprit décadent et de la " charogne " 1900. A travers le personnage de des Esseintes, Huysmans n'a pas seulement résumé, immortalisé les torpeurs, les langueurs, les névroses vénéneuses et perverses du siècle finissant. Des Esseintes est aussi un héros kierkegaardien, à la fois grotesque et pathétique, une des plus fortes figures de l'angoisse qu'ait laissées notre littérature. Fils spirituel de René et de la génération du mal du siècle, il annonce à bien des égards le Bardamu de Céline et le Roquentin de La Nausée."

"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.

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
