He's given to flights of poetic--and, at times surrealistic--verbal fancy/5(15). Jean Genet has 82 books on Goodreads with ratings. Jean Genet’s most popular book is Our Lady of the Flowers.

The book is known for its unsparing account of the thieving and prostitution in which the author was involved throughout his travels.
