Product Details

Praise

“A novel containing such inconceivably beautiful sentences, I would have liked to memorize some. Its psychology sees to the very core of people and, in spite of that, touches them as if with the hand of a kindly old physician.” —Walter Benjamin

“Alien Hearts is perhaps the book that one likes Maupassant best for. The author’s conception of love has sublimed itself into very nearly the true form of
the Canticles and Shakespeare.” —George Saintsbury

"Eminent translator Howard gives a leavened, modern feel to Maupassant’s weary tale of a young aristocratic loser infatuated with an on-the-rise Parisian salon hostess." –-Publishers Weekly

“Maupassant is the world’s most accomplished of narrators.” –Joseph Conrad

“[Maupassant] is brilliantly clever.” –Henry James

“[Maupassant] is so relentlessly artistic that he puts the fear of philosophy in your heart.” –The New York Times

"This is classic Maupassant, beautifully rendered by Howard." –Harper’s
