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

Marthe, the story of a woman by J.-K Huysmans( Book )

78 editions published between 1876 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new translation by Brendan King is the first for nearly fifty years. Capturing the lively linguistic inventiveness of the original, it also includes an introduction and comprehensive notes." "First published in 1876, Marthe was an important landmark in J.-K. Huysmans's literary career and propelled him into the growing ranks of the Naturalist movement, then beginning to take shape under Zola's direction. Marthe was one of the first French novels to tackle head-on the subject of prostitution, a theme that was to become a central preoccupation in the work of many novelists, painters and poets. Set in and around the demi-monde of the Parisian music hall, it centres on a would-be actress, Marthe, who works in one of the lowest dives in Paris, and tells the story of her brief and ultimately doomed relationship with Leo, a romantic searching for something to take the place of his lost illusions."--BOOK JACKET

69 editions published between 1882 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 420 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
