"The stories in this collection are among the most accessible of Sade's fiction. They range from the dramatic novella Eugenie de Franval - in which a father's criminal passion for his beautiful daughter leads to intrigue, abduction and murder - to comic tales such as 'The Husband Who Played Priest', concerning a lecherous monk who finds an ingenious way to combine clerical duties with secular pleasures. Sade's gifts as a humorist are much in evidence, as is his particular delight in unusual marital situations - which invariably lead to the most diverting conclusions."--BOOK JACKET.
