Julian Barnes on when a young Guy de Maupassant was invited to lunch
at the holiday cottage of Algernon Swinburne. A flayed human hand,
pornography, the serving of monkey meat, and inordinate amounts of
alcohol, all made for a truly bizzarre Anglo-French encounter.
… and to accompany the article a new translation by Elliot Lewis of
Maupassant’s “L’Anglais d’Etretat”.
