Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: "Who does not love the warm attack of life . . . when it flows thus round the heart and engulfs everything?"

None know this better than the good old Canon of Notre Dame. Coming to Paris naked as a dagger, he soon proves a favorite confessor to the ladies. Then a high-born beauty awards him a prize: the relic of a Saint . . . a bone, the ladies say, that will cure anything!

Already famous for his novels, in the 1830s Honoré Balzac undertook a series of tales as full of human understanding as of dalliance and lusty conniving: the rowdy, Rabelasian Droll Stories.
