Père Goriot by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

A kindhearted and idealistic youth enters the grasping Parisian society of the 1820s, starting at a shabby but respectable boardinghouse, the Pension Vauquer. Eugene de Rastignac has entered in the glittering capital to make his fortune, and his friendships with the pension's other residents introduce him to the realities and costs of city life. Pere Goriot- one of the outstanding novels in 'The Human Comedy', Balzac's panoramic study of Parisian life- features richly detailed settings, a skillfully related plot, and a vibrant cast of characters.
