Our Lady Of The Flowers


Product Description

A beautiful new edition of Jean Genet's classic work -- part of a revitalising repackage of all of Genet's novels for 2019, with an introduction by Jean-Paul Sartre.

''Our Lady of the Flowers'', often considered Genet's masterpiece, was written in the cell of a French prison where he was being held for theft. Here is the darker side of Montmartre, a world of pimps, thieves, prostitutes, queens and blackmailers, where 'morality' in the common sense of the word has no meaning. The story of Divine, a drag-queen prostitute, is interwoven with that of one of his lovers, a young man due to be arrested for murder. A story of sex, crime and death, ''Our Lady of the Flowers'' is a powerful and original debut novel, which put Genet into the front rank of French writers.
