Count d'Orgel's Ball by Raymond Radiguet
Book DescriptionCount d'Orgel is handsome, charming, and carefree, a model of cool aristocratic aplomb. His wife, the Countess, is beautiful and pure and loves her husband more than anything in the world. But from the moment the d'Orgels meet and befriend the clever young Francois de Seryeuse backstage at the circus, all three of these supremely civilized and witty people are caught up in an ever more intricate and seductive dance of deception and self-deception. At Count d'Orgel's masquerade ball, the real disguises are those of the human heart. Completed just before Raymond Radiguet's death at the age of twenty, Count d'Orgel's Ball is a love story that is as disturbing as it is delicious.

Author Biography - Raymond Radiguet
Raymond Radiguet (1903-1923) was the eldest of seven children born to a poor cartoonist. He left school at fifteen and was soon contributing articles to newspapers and journals in Paris, where he became the protege and lover of Jean Cocteau. Radiguet published poems, criticism, and a play, The Pelican, as well as a highly successful novel, The Devil in the Flesh, while leading a wild and increasingly self-destructive life. He died of typhoid, contracted from eating oysters. The manuscript of his second novel, Count d'Orgel's Ball, was prepared for posthumous publication by Cocteau. Jean Cocteau (1889-1963), poet, playwright, novelist, and film director, was one of the most influential figures in twentieth-century French artistic life, especially celebrated for his collaborations with such contemporaries as Picasso, Stravinsky, and Erik Satie. Among Cocteau's best-known works are the short novel Les Enfants terribles and three movies, The Blood of a Poet, Beauty and the Beast, and Orpheus.
