About the book:

Joseph Kessel, Belle de jour, 1928

Published in 1928 in an atmosphere of controversy and scandal still remembered to this day, Joseph Kessel’s all-time classic is a powerful tale of transgression, an unapologetic ‘divorce between the heart and the flesh’. Séverine, a young woman recently married to a renowned surgeon, gets irresistibly drawn to a forbidden underworld that will change her life forever… The novel definitively reached cult status when it was adapted for the cinema by Luis Buñuel in 1967, to critical acclaim.

You can purchase a digital copy of the book online here.
