Traveling With The Ghost

"The last in a long line of inbred aristocrats, the Comtesse des Esseintes had from childhood a taste for the macabre, the outre, the bizarre. Not for her the bright lights of the Opera or the bustle of the boulevards, her greatest joy was her cabinet of curiosities, her beloved retreat from the ugliness and banalities of the modern world, into which she would venture only under cover of darkness."
