Tristana, Benito Pérez Galdós, trans. Margaret Jull Costa

This novel is the basis for the film Tristana by Luis Buñuel, which is, as you might know a masterpiece. The book, which details the sexual predations of a man named Don Lope, is at once elegant, humorous, and disturbing. — Jonathon Sturgeon
