“[John Baxter is] a man with a great appreciation of what makes Paris tick.”
Newsday

A “flip book” featuring two classic novels about drugs, decadence—and Paris in the late 19th and early 20th centuries—translated from French by John Baxter (Immoveable Feast, We’ll Always Have Paris): Morphine, a rollicking novel about a handsome cavalry officer who introduces morphine to the aristocrats of 1889 Paris... and sleeps his way through town; and My Lady Opium, a fevered tour through the romantic and mysterious world of opium at the turn of the 20th century.
