The Tress of Hair, by Guy de Maupassant

Maupassant2

This story, one of Maupassant’s most memorable, certainly stirred me up back when I first read it in my student days, and it also features in Michel Deville’s wonderful film “La Lectrice” (1988), which I watched again on DVD the other night. That’s as good a reason as any to record this disturbing tale of erotic obsession for a new generation of readers/listeners.
