A Look Inside
Long Description
When Madame Lancelin and her daughter were killed by their maids, Christine and Lea Papin in the winter of 1933, France was simultaneously shocked and fascinated by the bizarre crime. The crime was especially interesting to the literary community, so much so that it was incorporated in various works of fiction. L'Affaire Papin: Stylisation Du Fait Divers examines how the case has been treated throughout history, and also examines what attracted Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre, Jacques Lacan, Jean Genet and Paul Houdyer to the case.
