Gils Blas recounts the education and swashbuckling adventures of an adaptable young valet as he progresses from one master to the next, making his way from naive youth to cunning servant to landed proprietor and nobleman--with a stint in jail, bereavements, and fits of remorse along the way. Finally, our hero learns compassion and achieves tranquillity in a life in the country. A terrific tale of action and adventure, newly designed in a 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
