THE WORLD’S WEIRDEST CABARET — EXPOSED!

JUST PUBLISHED

Le Chat Noir was a playground for painters, writers, poets, pranksters, and musicians, all gleefully demolishing the standards of art and good taste. Caroline Crépiat examines such eccentric personalities as Paul VerlaineAlphonse AllaisMarie KrysinskaMaurice Mac-Nab, and Charles Cros, and analyzes their treatment of money, women, translation, humor, sex, disease, and scatology, with generous samplings of the original texts. A masterful look at a rich and colorful legend of the avant-garde!

(Apparently they didn’t have room for my name on the cover, but we’ll let that pass.) Look closely and you’ll see the book has an Afterword by the great French humorist Alphonse Allais. That alone should send you off to Zon to buy a copy.

The Path to a Woman’s Heart….

Number 5 in our collectible Pocket Erotica series is an amusing and offbeat Cinderella story:  FOOT NOTES by Restif de la Bretonne, translated from the French by Richard Robinson. This forthcoming edition features choice excerpts from Bretonne’s  libertine novel Le Pied de Fanchette (“Fanchette’s pretty little foot”), which recounts the adventures—with many twists and turns—of a girl whose pretty feet attract nearly everyone she meets. Indeed, poor Fanchette is hounded by seducers wherever she goes.
