La Rabouilleuse

(1840)
A novel by

 
La Rabouilleuse (The Black Sheep), is an 1842 novel by Honore de Balzac as part of his series La Comedie humaine. The Black Sheep is the title of the English translation by Donald Adamson published by Penguin Classics. It tells the story of the Bridau family, trying to regain their lost inheritance after a series of unfortunate mishaps.

Though for years an overlooked work in Balzac's canon, it has gained popularity and respect in recent years. The Guardian listed The Black Sheep 12 on its list of the 100 Greatest Novels of All Time.
