Description de l’éditeur
In 1870, a young conscript recounts the lives of French soldiers in war against Prussia pain and tears, lice, filth and death . . . Mr. Folantin, petty clerk in a department, leading a mediocre life. Only the quest for a decent restaurant for dinner puts some hope in the monotony of his days. Two very different worlds to explore some aspects of the naturalist talent Huysmans, the author of A Rebours.
