Octave Mirbo's book made a lot of noise in its time - even if you had frank notes of the maid, which can embarrass even a sophisticated reader. Meanwhile, this work was first published in 1900. A bright picture of the decomposition of bourgeois society in the person of gentlemen who know no bounds in satisfying their erotic fantasies and whims. The main character of the novel - Celestina, an ordinary maid, who over the years of her work has changed many places. The book amazes with its bold revelations, especially in the scenery of the last century, which (as we think today) should have been more noble, restrained and prim. The provocative novel was filmed three times.
