"Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise."
― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

The best-known and oft-considered greatest French writer is unarguably Victor Hugo. His romance novels and stories have withstood the test of language and time. His most famous work, 'Les Miserables', has been transformed into film, theatre, and opera. This early printing of the works of Hugo includes works through 1838 including:
·
"Cromwell"
·
"Odes et Poesies et Ballads"
·
"Les Orientales"
·
"Hernani"
·
"Marion de Lorme"
·
"Le Roi S'amuse"

New York, Grove Press, 2022, trade paperback, 272 pp, Advance Uncorrected Proof (ARC), New. Straight, tight and clean with no wear or markings in bright, pictorial card covers, no dustjacket as issued. The pieces in this collection, written between 1956 and 1961 and including short fiction, a radio play, and a stunning early novel, offer startling insights into Cohens imagination and creative process. Cohen explores themes that would permeate his later work, from shame and unworthiness to sexual desire in all its sacred and profane dimensions to longing, whether for love, family, freedom, or transcendence.

Folded into the form of a letter, the work was letterpress printed in wraps of handmade "combat paper" made from military uniforms. The author says: "Some time ago-maybe a year, maybe two?
