Necklace and Other Stories, The

COLLECTION. This collection includes adaptations of three short stories by Guy de Maupassant. In “The Necklace,” Mathilde and her husband work extra jobs and live in extreme poverty for 10 years to pay for a diamond necklace, only to discover it is a fake. In “Julie Romain,” a young fan visits an elderly French actress who is mired in the nostalgia of an illusionary past. In “Humiliation,” a Parisian socialite recounts how she was cleverly duped by her personal maid.
