From Our Editors

Victor Hugo fits in with many other literary geniuses of the past couple of centuries. He was a larger-than-life personality, becoming more of a legend than a mere mortal as his fame grew. The man who wrote The Hunchback of Notre Dame was also a revolutionary, a painter and a mystic who conversed with the dead. Graham Robb offers Victor Hugo, a detailed biography providing new insight into Hugo’s intensity, capturing both the man and the myth.
