Most widely held works by Christopher Rivers
Mademoiselle Giraud, ma femme by Adolphe Belot( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in French and English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The sensational Mademoiselle Giraud, My Wife (published in 1870 with a preface by Zola) tells of the suffering of a naive young man whose new bride will not agree to consummate the marriage. Eventually he learns from an acquaintance, to his amazement, that their wives are lesbian lovers. In the pitched battle between husband and wife, the sexes are evenly matched - until the end." "Christopher Rivers argues in his introduction that the protagonist's homophobic attitude toward lesbianism is ironically linked to his intimate homosocial bonds with men. This example of commercial fiction, Rivers argues, reveals tensions in nineteenth-century French society not apparent in canonical works of high culture."--Jacket
