L'abbé C: A Novel
M. Boyars, 1983 - 158 páginas
Told in a series of first-person accounts, L"'Abbe C" is a startling narrative about the intense and terrifying relationship between twin brothers. Charles is a modern libertine, dedicated to vice and depravity, while Robert is a priest so devout that he is nicknamed L'Abbe'. When the sexually wild Eponine intrudes upon their suffocating relationship, anguish, delirium, and death ensue. Other works by Georges Bataille published by Marion Boyars include "Blue of Noon" and "My Mother Madame Edwarda and the Dead Man.
