Bola de sebo [Cuento]
View all 4 comments. It would have to be a reader with a hard heart not to have tears in his eyes for pity and rage. Boule de Suif was not a disappointment in the slightest.
Rodrigo Cazaux rated it it was amazing Nov 03, Want to Read saving…. An exceptionally inspired, economical work work of apparently effortless short-story, Naturalistic fiction. And here we see them having it richly and joyously with a Religious backdrop and a Brothel foreground at the Communion of the Local Children.
This book makes me feel angry at human nature. Nice It's good, I thoroughly enjoyed it and how it shows human nature upon the time of which it takes place and the situation. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Her body is used as a trading tool when a group of 'worthy' folk are detained as they journey through a France occupied by the Prussians after the war. On a checkpoint, a Prussian officer holds the coach in hostage, unless he can have a lady to share the night with him. Sometimes the old ones are the best. In the first part of the journey, all the occupants will abusively enjoy sharing generous Boule de Suif's food basket.
