my favorite writer is Guy de Maupassant
How could anyone write so many stories
in such a short life?
He died in his forties.
Henri-René-Albert-Guy de Maupassant
was born 5 August 1850 at the
Château de Miromesnil (Castle Miromesnil,
nearDieppe in the Seine-Inférieure
(nowSeine-Maritime) department in France.
He was the first son of Laure Le Poittevin
and Gustave de Maupassant,
both from prosperous bourgeois families.
When Maupassant was 11 and his brother
Hervé was five, his mother, an independent-minded
woman, risked social disgrace to obtain a legal separation from her husband.
Good gosh Gertie! That is some house.
Guess what it is now a B&B
I want to go.. Here are some of his wonderful stories:::
