The Werewolf of Paris: A Novel | [Guy Endore]

The Werewolf of Paris: A Novel

In this gripping work of historical fiction, Endore's werewolf, an outcast named Bertrand Caillet, travels across pre-Revolutionary France seeking to calm the beast within. Stunning in its sexual frankness and eerie, fog-enshrouded visions, this audiobook was decidedly influential for the generations of horror and science fiction authors who came afterward.

Audible Editor Reviews

The Werewolf of Paris is acclaimed American author Guy Endore’s classic historical horror novel from 1933 that stealthily follows werewolf Bertrand Caillet - who was conceived when his teen mother was raped by a priest - as the beast navigates the rough-and-tumble streets of Paris during Franco-Prussian War.

Narrated in coolly ominous tones by Jean Brassard, this dark and often twisted morality tale is a literary classic and ranks right up there with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein as an elite of gothic fiction.

Publisher's Summary

Endore's classic werewolf novel - now back in print for the first time in over forty years - helped define a genre and set a new standard in horror fiction. The werewolf is one of the great iconic figures of horror in folklore, legend, film, and literature. And connoisseurs of horror fiction know that The Werewolf of Paris is a cornerstone work, a masterpiece of the genre that deservedly ranks with Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Endore's classic novel has not only withstood the test of time since it was first published in 1933, but it boldly used and portrayed elements of sexual compulsion in ways that had never been seen before, at least not in horror literature.

In this gripping work of historical fiction, Endore's werewolf, an outcast named Bertrand Caillet, travels across pre-Revolutionary France seeking to calm the beast within. Stunning in its sexual frankness and eerie, fog-enshrouded visions, this audiobook was decidedly influential for the generations of horror and science fiction authors who came afterward.

    "different than you'd expect"

    this is not just a blood and guts werewolf story, though there are some moments. it's much more of a psychological study and a biographical history of an individual that becomes a werewolf, and initially we get his ancestor's story for a stretch before he even comes into the story. it may not be fast paced enough for Twilight crowd but I thought there were some interesting things in it, and it is one of the "original" werewolf stories that laid the foundation for much that came after. with some modernization it could be done very well as a film. & was the basis for the Oliver Reed werewolf film. for being written in 1933 it had some elements that surprised me. it is always interesting to me to find in some old lit tidbits of history or even "pop" culture, for example how early a word or phrase was used that i thought was modern or even how long ago Coke was popular etc. probably not going to be a favorite among the MTV generation
