The Bull-Man and the Grasshopper, first published in 1876 as Une histoire de l'autre monde, and here presented in English for the first time in a translation by Brian Stableford, tells the story of Jean Pioux and Marius Mazuclard, two bizarre street performers who are arrested for participating in the brief rule of the Paris Commune and sentenced as deportees to New Caledonia.
An eccentric melodrama of adventure and romance, this early and fast-paced novella by the prolific Jean Richepin offers a stirring account of flamboyant grace under extreme pressure.
