About The Book

A carriage transporting ten passengers fleeing from Rouen is stopped at a village inn byPrussian soldiers, who decide to detain them until one of their party, the prostitute Boulede Suif, consents to sleep with their officer. When Boule de Suif refuses to do so onaccount of her principles and patriotic sentiments, the solidarity initially manifested byher fellow travellers becomes increasingly tested as the deadlock continues, and thestrained relationship between her and her "respectable" counterparts graduallyworsens.

A scathing satire of bourgeois prejudice and hypocrisy and a compelling snapshot ofFrance during the 1870 FrancoPrussian War, 'Boule de Suif' - here presented with fiveother major stories by the author of Bel Ami - was declared a masterpiece by Flaubertand is widely considered to be Maupassant's finest short story.
