One Thousand and One Ghosts

Alexandre Dumas

ISBN: 9781847497574 (PB - E)

Coming back into town after a hunting expedition, Alexandre Dumas witnesses an incredible scene: a man has come to hand himself in to the mayor after decapitating his wife, terrified by the fact that her severed head spoke to him to proclaim her innocence. This prompts the guests at a dinner Dumas attends later that evening to exchange stories of death and the supernatural, ranging from accounts of the guillotine during the Terror to the legend of the corpse of a French king taking revenge on grave-robbers and tales of vampires and fratricide in the Carpathians. One Thousand and One Ghosts - here presented in its first and only translation into English - is a gloriously macabre work by the celebrated author of The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo, which also touches on the serious political issue of capital punishment.
