Madame Parisse

Set on the French Riviera, ‘Madame Parisse’ tells the story of an aristocratic woman, trapped in an unhappy marriage.

When her husband goes on a business trip for four days, she embarks on an affair with the dashing Monsieur Jean de Carmelin.

However, neither of them can foresee the consequences of their illicit encounter. Told from an observer’s point of view, this is a wistful, tragic, and romantic tale, packed with yearning and criticism of the social conventions of the time.

A good, old-fashioned tear-jerker, ´Madame Parisse´ will delight anyone already familiar with Guy de Maupassant's body of work.

Hailed as one of the pioneers of the modern short story, Henri Ren Albert Guy de Maupassant (1850 - 1893) was born in Dieppe, France. After his parents’ divorce, Maupassant was cared for by his mother who had a passion for literature.

During his secondary education, he was introduced to the acclaimed novelist, Gustave Flaubert, who was to play a prominent part in Maupassant’s literary career.

The Franco-Prussian War saw the author enlist in the Navy, and his experiences influenced many of his books, including ‘Boule de Suif.’ Flaubert was to take him under his wing after the war, introducing him to realist and naturalist authors, such as Émile Zola and Ivan Turgenev.

During his later years, Maupassant suffered from mental health problems and was committed to an institution, where he was to die at the age of 43.
