"Madame Tellier's Establishment" is a short story by French writer Guy de Maupassant. The story concerns the inhabitants of a provincial brothel who all depart on a train journey to witness the confirmation ceremony of the madame's niece. Henri René Albert Guy de Maupassant (5 August 1850 - 1893) was a French writer. He is considered a master of the story form, writing 300 during his life. He also produced six novels, three travel books, and one volume of verse. Other notable works by this author include: "Bel-Ami" (1885), "Pierre et Jean" (1888), and "Mademoiselle Fifi" (1883). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
