Our Lady of the Flowers

by: Jean Genet

Publisher: Grove Atlantic (1943)


Out of stock

Staff Pick by comrade: Fin

Genet dreams up characters from another world, that of his past and his fantasy. He brings you into the world he imagines where sex workers and criminals live and where he longs to be. While Genet's writing has you afloat in a world of desire, he keeps partially connected to the ground as he writes of the reality of prison.
