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.

The damned = Là-bas by J.-K Huysmans( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Huysmans's gaudy, shocking and largely autobiographical novel La-Bas was described by one critic as 'even more disquieting' than his masterpiece, A Rebours (Against Nature)." "It follows Durtal, a shy, censorious man, who is writing a biography of Gilles de Rais, the fifteenth-century child murderer and supposed original for 'Bluebeard'. Durtal is bored and disgusted by the vulgarity of everyday life and seeks spiritual solace by immersing himself in another age. But when he meets the exquisitely evil Madame Chantelouve, he is drawn into the twilight world of black magic and erotic devilry in fin-de-siecle Paris."--BOOK JACKET
