The The Man Who Laughs wiki last edited by pikahyper on 04/03/14 04:40PM View full history

One of author Victor Hugo's most controversial and most celebrated works. This novel is loaded with intrigue and suspense! The incredible love story of the man whose face has been disfigured into a laughing mask in childhood, the loyal blind girl who gives him her heart, and the cruelty of the privileged aristocracy whose laughingstock and savior he becomes, is remarkable in its emotional impact. Hugo wrote The Man Who Laughs, over a period of fifteen months while he was living in the Channel Islands, having been exiled from his native France because of the controversial political content of his previous novels. Beautifully illustrated, this classic comic graphic novel captures the imagination of readers of all ages and inspires a love of literature and reading.
