Eugène Sue

$ 2.99

Described by Victor Hugo as ‘The Dickens of Paris’, Eugène Sue was a prolific author that popularised the genre of the serial novel in France. Sue wrote the much-admired and widely imitated ‘The Mysteries of Paris’, as well as many other sensational novels, exploring the seamy side of urban life. Though known for their melodramatic quality, Sue’s novels were the first to tackle the social ills that accompanied the Industrial Revolution in France. This comprehensive eBook presents Sue’s collected works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
