    One thought on “Bubu of Montparnasse”

    1. I found this book quite marvelous from beginning to end, the story of a Parisian prostitute - it should have more rightly be called Berthe of Montparnasse but the antagonizing force in Berthe's life was her husband come pimp, known as Bubu (Maurice). One of my favourite observations from the novel "The hunger of the tiger is like the hunger of the lamb. You have provided us with nourishment.

    2. Read this book because it was referenced in Henry & June (Anais Nin). However, I confess I did not get much out of it. I can only guess that it was unusual for its time.

    3.

    5. Una muestra clara de la depravación del ser humano mediante la narración de las desventuras de una inocente y dócil chica bajo los influjos de un hombre manipulador que la hunde en el abismo de la prostitución y, que con su carácter sumiso acepta como única verdad, como la única manera de vivir.Una historia muy recomendable, que me ha gustado mucho por la manera en que deja ver esa miseria, desesperación y también algo de esperanza en cada uno de sus personajes.
