Douglas Parmee is a retired Fellow of Queens' College, Cambridge. He now lives in Adelaide, South Australia.
'Three Classic tales of sexual passion, perversion, and corruption have been added to the rapidly increasing World's Classics collection, whose repertoire of nineteenth-century French novels is now impressive. The price and format of these volumes make them an obvious choice for the reader approaching them in translation, the more so since each is accompanied by a helpful general introduction ... the reader is likely to get better vaqlue here than from other translation currently in print.' Timothy Unwin, University of Western Australia, MLR, 89./2, 1994 'Douglas Parmee's translation of Nana is another thoroughly researched and highly crafted job which has caught the raciness of the original. It has a substantial Introduction which evokes in fine detail the flashy, pleasure-loving society of the Second Empire.' Joy Newton, University of Glasgow, French Studies, Vol. 47, Part 3
