The Legion of Honor

by Guy Maupassant (Author), A. E Henderson (Translator)
Buy for $2.99 Excerpt

The rich but rather dull Maitre Caillard has always been besotted with the famous 'Leigon of Honor'. It would kill him to walk the streets of Paris and see others displaying it proudly on their lapels, all the while his stayed empty. 'The Leigon of Honor' is a short social parody that follows a man with a boundless obsession desperately pulling strings he probably shouldn't be pulling.



Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) was a French writer. Famed for being a master of the short story, he also wrote travel books and occasionally dabbled in poetry. His stories mainly focus on the relationships between men and women sitting at crossroads in their lives - whether personal or professional. His dramatic flair is largely influenced by French novelist Gustave Flaubert and is perfect for fans of Anton Chekhov's short stories. The most notable of the 300 short stories that he wrote include 'Bel Ami', 'Une Vie', and 'The Dumpling'.
