Bubu of Montparnasse - Charles-Louis Phillipe

Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1952, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Poor Dustwrapper. Dustwrapper edge worn, faded in parts, with notable loss at top edge. A little rubbed at extremities. Edges of the text block heavily tanned.

Illustrated with line drawings. From the cover: “Bubu of Montparnasse is a story about the underworld of Paris. Its characters are prostitutes, the men who live off them, and the men who support them. Philippe is never sentimental, never making moral judgements — yet running through his magical and succinct evocation of Paris, his absolutely convincing treatment of his characters, there is a pity and understanding of human suffering and endurance that is profoundly disturbing.”
