Bel Ami is French author Guy de Maupassant's second novel, published in 1885; an English translation titled Bel Ami, or, The History of a Scoundrel: A Novel first appeared in 1903.
The story chronicles journalist Georges Duroy's corrupt rise to power from a poor ex-NCO to one of the most successful men in Paris, most of which he achieves by manipulating a series of powerful, intelligent, and wealthy mistresses.
Text and chapters are perfectly set up to match the layout and feel of a physical copy, rather than being haphazardly thrown together for a quick release.
• New illustrations in color and other text decoration.
• Active TOC: You can navigate through the entire collection via a main table of contents
• Re-arranged texts for the best display on Kobo, PC and every e-Reader device.
** Bonus: Free Audiobook link for download at the end of the book (just click to download)
