From the great French novelist comes this long-unavailable collection of tales in the tradition of Boccaccio’s Decameron. Balzac’s Contes Drolatiques, or Droll Stories, were originally published in three volumes in the 1830s. Set in medieval Europe, these stories were Balzac’s attempt to write in the great tradition of Rabelais and Boccaccio, to render the Middle Ages with a touch of raunchy humor, and to provide a delightful portrait of medieval France. Balzac took the old themes that had delighted his ancestors—the tales of faithless wives and confiding husbands, of monks incredibly endowed for amorous athleticism, of lusty wenches and adventurous lads, and of great bouts of eating and drinking. Droll Stories has always been an essential part of Balzac’s work when published in French, but it has been excluded from the definitive English editions. This book presents all three volumes of this classic and enduring work. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction—novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Searing and sensual, Yocandra has established Cuban writer Zoe Valdes as a defiant new voice in international fiction. Her unforgettable novel tells the story of a young woman trapped in the tropical paradise of her homeland where only anger or laughter or dreams or sex seem to have meaning. As Castro's regime turns her verdant island into a wasteland, Yocandra plots her own course of survival. At sixteen, she moves in with the Traitor, a phoney philosopher. Later she takes up with the Nihilist, a banned film-maker. We meet her best friend, the Gusana, and the Lynx, who escapes to Miami strapped to a raft. Savage and wickedly funny, Yocandra is a stunning novel of love and rage.
