French Laughter

Literary Humour from Diderot to Tournier

Walter Redfern

  • The humor of these writers has been seriously neglected until now
  • Includes interleaved "riffs" that extend the discussion beyond the French literary context
  • Lively style and interesting variation between "low" and "high" culture
