Om boka

The Wrong Side of Paris, the final novel in Balzac's The Human Comedy, is
the compelling story of Godefroid, an abject failure at thirty, who seeks
refuge from materialism by moving into a monastery-like lodging house in the
shadows of Notre-Dame. Presided over by Madame de La Chanterie, a noblewoman
with a tragic past, the house is inhabited by a remarkable band of men - all
scarred by the tumultuous aftermath of the French Revolution - who have devoted
their lives to performing anonymous acts of charity. Intrigued by the Order of
the Brotherhood of Consolation and their uplifting dedication to virtuous
living, Godefroid strives to follow their example. He agrees to travel -
incognito - to a Parisian slum to save a noble family from ruin. There he meets
a beautiful, ailing Polish woman who lives in great luxury, unaware that just
outside her bedroom door her own father and son are suffering in dire poverty.
By proving himself worthy of the Brotherhood, Godefroid finds his own spiritual
redemption.
