Three More Fragments Of La Comedie Humaine

La Fille aux Yeux d'Or: Henri de Marsay- ruthless statesman, great lover and Mary Sue- has an affair with a girl who turns out to be his sister's sex-slave. Preposterous, melodramatic, pornographic- with Oscar Wilde and Ian Fleming standing down-wind.

Autre Etude de Femme: Stories are told after dinner in a Parisian salon. The best of them- La Grande Breteche- is sometimes published as a stand-alone.

Adieu: A melodramatic love story frames an extraordinarily graphic account of the crossing of the Beresina during Napoleon's retreat from Moscow.
