Here is the expanded edition of classic outre book, The Grand Guignol, first published in 1988 and now long out of print.
Like the original anthology, it includes an illustrated introduction to the theater of Paris and abroad, a breakdown of its stage tricks, a summary of one hundred plots, extensive photo documentation, André de Lord’s essay, “Fear in Literature,” and two originally produced Grand Guignol scripts.
The expanded edition also contains additional graphic and textual material including a color insert of Grand Guignol posters; the 1938 autobiographical account of Maxa, the company’s leading female performer entitled “I Am the Maddest Woman in the World”; and the controversial playscript Orgy in the Lighthouse.
