Our Lady of the Flowers

Genet, M. Jean


'A beautifully written, dreamlike book . . . A true outlaw artist.' Bobby Gillespie, The Times

Our Lady of the Flowers
, often considered Genet’s masterpiece, was written in the cell of a French prison where he was being held for theft. Here is the darker side of Montmartre, a world of pimps, thieves, prostitutes, queens and blackmailers, where ‘morality’ in the common sense of the word has no meaning. The story of Divine, a drag-queen prostitute, is interwoven with that of one of his lovers, a young man due to be arrested for murder. A story of sex, crime and death, Our Lady of the Flowers is a powerful and original debut novel, which put Genet into the front rank of French writers.
