Ferdinand Fabre was at one time regarded as the founder of the French regional novel yet his best book, "The Abbe Tigrane," was never available in English until this translation appeared. A dramatic and shadowy novel, full of "Name of the Rose"-like intrigue, Fabre's extraordinary novel describes bitter Episcopal rivalries in 19th century France.
