"The Cathedral (French: La Cathédrale) (1898) is a novel by the French writer Joris-Karl Huysmans. It is the third of Huysmans' books to feature the character Durtal, a thinly disguised portrait of the author. He had already featured the character of Durtal in Là-bas and En route, which recounted his conversion to Catholicism. La Cathédrale continues the story. After his retreat at a Trappist monastery, Durtal moves to the city of Chartres, renowned for its cathedral. Huysmans describes the building in great detail" -- Wikipedia

Against nature by J.-K Huysmans( Book )

33 editions published between 1959 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this 1884 novel, the last scion of a once-powerful family retreats from his bourgeois life in Paris to an isolated villa where he spends his days in intellectual and aesthetic contemplation. A classic account of the quest for enlarged experience and new sensations, Against Nature scandalized Victorian critics with its break from naturalism and embrace of fin-de-siecle decadence"--
The Vatard sisters by J.-K Huysmans( )

9 editions published between 1912 and 2015 in English and French and held by 867 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les Soeurs Vatard, described by its author as a ""lewd but exact"" slice of life, was J.-K. Huysmans' second novel. Huysmans abandoned poetry and turned to the novel at a time when the works of Emile Zola were intensely controversial; Les Soeurs Vatard is dedicated to Zola by ""his fervent admirer and devoted friend.""In it, Huysmans vividly depicts the scene that for his generation of French writers stood for the contemporary world: the brutal, teeming life of the industrial quarters of Paris in the 1870s. Huysmans' Vatard sisters are ""Désirée, an urchin of fifteen, a brunette with large

68 editions published between 1882 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 440 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

This novel tells the story of two sisters who work in a Parisian book-binding factory. But the main protagonist is Paris, suburban Paris, the Paris of railway stations, cheap restaurants and café-concerts. The passages that describe the music-halls and crowds of the Avenue de Maine and the Boulevard Saint Michel, or the railway yard seen from the back window of the sisters' bedroom, have a visual immediacy, a kind of energy, a force of personality, which are utterly unusual in Huysmans' work

À rebours (translated into English as Against the Grain or Against Nature) (1884) is a novel by the French novelist Joris-Karl Huysmans. It is a novel in which very little happens; its narrative concentrates almost entirely on its principal character, and is mostly a catalogue of the tastes and inner life of Jean Des Esseintes, an eccentric, reclusive aesthete and antihero, who loathes 19th century bourgeois society and tries to retreat into an ideal artistic world of his own creation. À rebours contained many themes which became associated with the Symbolist aesthetic
