Three Skeleton Key
Sunday, October 27th, 2019 @ 2pm
“Three Skeleton Key” is a short story by the French author Georges-Gustave Toudouze. The January 1937 edition of Esquire marked its first appearance in English. This suspenseful tale and “Leiningen Versus the Ants” were discovered by the magazine’s editor Arnold Gingrich.
Georges-G. Toudouze (1877-1972) was born in Paris, France. His father, Gustave Toudouze, was a well-known author of the time. The younger Toudouze wrote on such topics as art, architecture, travel and French naval history. Although he penned numerous adventure novels and short stories, he is today remembered for a single work: “Three Skeleton Key”
