Here’s the set-up:
Paris in the 1920’s, a time of jazz, flappers, fast money, vibrant clubs and the excesses of life for those who survived World War One. Montparnasse in that era: the quarter of Paris that was home to Hemingway and Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, Picasso, Man Ray, and countless other creative souls from all over the world. They drank, they partied, they created and they hung out at famous cafes like Le Coupole, La Rotonde and Le Select.

But there was also a dark spiritual undertone to the city during The Roaring Twenties (or as the French called it, ‘Les Annees Folles.’ This was a time of, gangsters, wounded ex-soldiers and angry spirits…..

Audrey Hamilton is a young American woman who comes to Paris in the mid-1920’s to paint and fulfill her artistic dreams. But darkness and terror await her in the profane disturbed spirit of Charles Baudelaire, the masterful poet of the 19th Century masterpiece ‘Les Fleurs du Mal.’ The long dead poet reaches out to Audrey from his grave the grave in the brooding Cemetery of Montparnasse.

TWENTY FLOWERS OF EVIL is a wonderful historical novel as well as a literary novel. Even more intriguing, it is a frightening ghost story as well as an ode to the Paris of the 1920’s. Lavishly illustrated with rare photographs and new art, it is a novel, an art exhibition, a trip back in time and a dark love letter to the city of Paris and a special time in the 20th Century.
Lavishly illustrated with original art and rare photographs of the era.

Making this edition even more memorable are the original illustrations of French Artist, KARINE STADER, whose work has been shown in galleries across Europe and the US. This is her print and Kindle debut.
