This tiny classic is a must read for anybody who lives in the real world. It pours a solid dose of cold water on rabid political correctness with the same insight underpinning it as found in Lolita. The difference in Woman and Puppet is the lack of convenient tidyness and literary pretention.5/5(2).

His friend, don Mateo Diaz warns him off by describing his own history with the woman -- a history of being repeatedly attracted and then rebuffed by . WOMAN AND THE PUPPET (Carnival/ Spain) by LOUYS, PIERRE and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at La Femme et le pantin (The Woman and the Puppet) is an novel by Pierre Lou s. "The Woman and The Puppet - which drew some of its inspiration from Bizet's Carmen, as well as a particular episode in Casanova's Memoirs - is a precise account of obsessive love, a distillation of decadent themes that holds good from one fin-de-siecle to another, a cautionary tale whose title acknowledges that for a woman to be fatale requires the complicity of a male puppet.".

Set during carnival season in Spain, The Woman and The Puppet still simmers with a dark eroticism over a century after its publication. (SP) Price: £ Apple Books Preview.
