It underlines the constant tension between peasant and Parisian, moralist and entertainer, head and heart that gives Aymes work its charm. After a preliminary chapter on Ayme the man, the book turns to an examination of Aymes recurrent themes: sexual repression, schizophrenia, social order, illusion, thwarted ambition. This is complemented by an exploration of Aymes art: the fluent, ironic style, the comic reversals, the rise-and-fall patterns, the personal and collective crises, the increasing tension in a flawed victim.

These patterns combine with Aymes key themes to convey a tender but tormented world-view where the vision of the moralist and the needs of the entertainer are finely balanced indeed.
