Balzac, Honoré de: A Second Home, v1, IMP 19 Dec 2007.
Honoré de Balzac:A Second Home
(Une double famille)
Translated by Clara Bell
(Also translated as ‘A Double Family’, ‘A Second Family’ etc.)
A novella of about 26,100 words.
A rising young Parisian lawyer meets an embroideress; they set up home and live in amity, producing two children. Then his father encourages him to marry a frigid religious bigot and he is very unhappy. What will happen when the two families become aware of each other?
I have added a picture, restored accents and reformatted the PG text file.
Incidentally, Balzac spells the family name as ‘Granville’ in some novels and ‘Grandville’ in others.
