Against the grain À rebours by J.-K Huysmans ( Book )
65 editions published between 1922 and 2012 in English and held by 2,395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Its narrative concentrates almost entirely on its principal character and is mostly a catalogue of the tastes and inner life of Jean des Esseintes, an eccentric, reclusive aesthete and antihero who loathes 19th-century bourgeois society and tries to retreat into an ideal artistic world of his own creation."--Wikipedia
A rebours by J.-K Huysmans ( Book )
330 editions published between 1884 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La 4e de couverture indique : "La Bible de l'esprit décadent et de la " charogne " 1900. A travers le personnage de des Esseintes, Huysmans n'a pas seulement résumé, immortalisé les torpeurs, les langueurs, les névroses vénéneuses et perverses du siècle finissant. Des Esseintes est aussi un héros kierkegaardien, à la fois grotesque et pathétique, une des plus fortes figures de l'angoisse qu'ait laissées notre littérature. Fils spirituel de René et de la génération du mal du siècle, il annonce à bien des égards le Bardamu de Céline et le Roquentin de La Nausée."

"At the novel's center is Durtal, a writer obsessed with the life of one of the blackest figures in history, Gilles de Rais--child murderer, sadist, necrophile and practitioner of all the black arts. The book's authentic, extraordinarily detailed descriptions of the Black Mass have never been surpassed."--Amazon.com
Against nature by J.-K Huysmans ( Book )
43 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in English and held by 1,283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
