J.-K. Huysmans, souvenirs
G. Aubault de la Haulte Chambre
Paris: Eugene Figuiere


Georges Aubault de la Haulte Chambre was a flambuoyant figure given to wearing purple stockings, silver-buckled shoes and a cloak. His recollections of his friendship with Huysmans are certainly interesting and lively, though some critics have thrown doubts on the accuracy of the author’s memory regarding certain incidents.
