Manon Lescaut

Abbe Prevost, Author, Steve Larkin, Translator, Prevost, Author Dedalus Press $10.99 (210p) ISBN 978-1-873982-77-8
The tragic love story Manon Lescaut has been the model for operas (by Puccini, Massenet and Henze) and films for years. This French classic by the Abb Pr vost, retranslated for the first time in 52 years by Steve Larkin, shows remarkable resiliency more than 200 years after its original publication. Set in Paris and Louisiana around 1720, it is the archetypal 18th-century romance, with the noble des Grieux as devoted lover and the worldly Manon as inconstant mistress.
