About the Author

GUY DE MAUPASSANT, (1850 - 1893), a native of Normandy, wrote in a bold and vigorous style that moves inexorably along clear plot lines. He had an astonishing capacity for creating believable characters, and he wasted little ink in putting his stories in motion. Maupassant was a master of "le mot juste," waiting until the perfect word came to him before setting his thoughts to paper. He was one of the first truly modern writers, and today his stories still resonate with enthusiasm and originality.

From AudioFile

The one long story ("Boule de Suif") and four short ones on these tapes perfectly illustrate de Maupassant's lyrical yet somber view of life as a morality play in which virtue seldom triumphs. Englishman Charlton Griffin brings a classically trained voice to the readings. His rhythm conveys the varying emotional atmospheres beautifully, and each character has a distinct voice. Although their accents are English instead of French, they match the personalities and backgrounds of the original French characters. These are classic short stories done classically.
