La Peau de chagrin

I finished the above this afternoon. Puns aside, I was spellbound by the segmented work. My copy was translated as The Fateful Skin whereas the standard title in English is The Wild Ass' Skin, a copy of which Joel bought in Bloomington 17 years ago. I am enjoying this Balzac turn and will continue with Eugenie Grandet.
