Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0946626820, Paperback)

Written as a satire of Parisian society in the wake of the Dreyfus Affair, this novel was dismissed prurient critics of the time as pornography. Mirbeau brings a journalist's analytical eye to the chambermaid Celestine's adventures as she loses her innocence and becomes as corrupt and depraved as the men who exploit her. Realistic and compelling, the story has attracted the attention of many artists, including Jean Renoir and Luis Brunel, who filmed it; and it has been compared with Fanny Hill and the Marquis de Sade's Justine and Juliette.
