I am a big fan of French literature, though I have never spent much time reading French short stories. This collection by Guy de Maupassant served as a good introduction; his stories are reasonably varied but tend to focus on the tragedies of doomed marriages and affairs with unreliable women. Certainly worth reading though. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 225301091X, Mass Market Paperback)

Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893), né à Paris, est un écrivain français. Lié à Gustave Flaubert et à Émile Zola, il a marqué la littérature française par ses six romans, dont Une Vie en 1883, Bel Ami en 1885, Pierre et Jean en 1887-1888, mais surtout par ses nouvelles (plus de 300), parfois intitulées contes, comme Boule de Suif en 1880, Les Contes de la Bécasse en 1883 ou Le Horla en 1887. Ces oeuvres retiennent l'attention par leur force réaliste, la présence importante du fantastique et par le pessimisme qui s'en dégage le plus souvent mais aussi par la maîtrise stylistique. La carrière littéraire de Guy de Maupassant se limite à une décennie - de 1880 à 1890. Reconnu de son vivant, Guy de Maupassant conserve un renom de premier plan, renouvelé encore par les nombreuses adaptations filmées de ses oeuvres. Autres oeuvres comprennent: La Maison Tellier (1881), Monsieur Parent (1885), Fort Comme la Mort (1889), La Vie Errante (1890) et L'Inutile Beauté (1890).
