Delightful little read.....much deeper though than what is seen at first pass I think.

old goriot - classic bildungsroman - seminal central character - rastignac - tragic ending - comparisons with king lear - old man's folly allied to rejection by his ungrateful daughters

A modern day Balzacian view? Read Murder in Belleville by Cara Black..that's Paris today
