Sensational, engrossing, and heartbreaking, The Mysteries of Paris is doubtless one of the most entertaining and influential works to emerge from the nineteenth century. It was one of Frances first serial novels, and for sixteen months, Parisians rushed in droves to the newsstands each week for the latest installment. Eugène Sues intricate melodrama unfolds around a Paris where, despite the gulf between them, the fortunes of the rich and poor are inextricably tangled. The suspenseful story of Rodolphe, a magnetic hero of noble heart and shadowy origins, was spun out over 150 issuesgarnering wild popularity, influencing political change, and inspiring a raft of successors, includingLes Misérables and The Count of Monte Cristo. At long last, this lively translation makes the riveting drama of Sues classic available to a new century of readers.
