Following the rise and fall of a young man enslaved by the flesh, this novel tells of Gaspard, who arrives in 1760 Paris in order to escape the squalor of the countryside. After settling into the city, his excessive ambition soon transforms him into a man without virtue or consciencea libertine. From the hustle and bustle of the Seine's port to the refinement of the Parisian parlors of the 18th century, Gaspard's life unfolds in the asphyxiating environments masterfully re-created by the author. Trazando la ascensión y la caída de un joven esclavizado por la carne, esta novela narra la historia de Gaspard, un hombre quien llega al París del 1760 escapando de la miseria del campo.

De la agitación portuaria del Sena al refinamiento de los salones parisinos del siglo XVIII, la vida de Gaspard se desenvuelve en las asfixiantes atmósferas magistralmente recreadas por el autor.
