Bookkake – has anyone read The Torture Garden?
Yes. Yes I have. Is this press a real thing? It looks exciting.
Yes. It is good, but by far the weakest of Mirbeau’s novels.
The website also doesn’t say who translated it :(
LOVED Torture Garden. It was a hallucination throughout. I have a hot copy with Catherine Deneuve (from “Belle du Jour”) tied up on the cover. I’ll have to read more Mirbeau.
Try L’Abbé Jules or Sébastien Roch. Or his short fiction if you can find any.
Thanks, Brendan. I will add to the to-read queue.
I’m using its pages as my bed sheets.
