Overview

Victor Hugo's writing is some of the best and most beautiful ever produced; this anonymous translation of his hard-to-find The Man Who Laughs shows Hugo's wonderful use of language to tell a heartbreaking story. While it is not as well known as Les Miserable or The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Man Who Laughs remains a classic story worth reading.
