Prepare to be riveted to your seat, waiting for the next staggering plot twist, the next loathsome or pitiful character, the next surprising and disquieting ending. Prepare to wallow in the kinds of descriptions that let you hear the cries of victims, taste the salt on a lover’s skin, smell the filth in the gutters of Paris streets, and feel the anger and distress of the masses. Prepare to meet the colorful, the tragic, and the magical—stories crafted by this masterful storyteller.
