Voici l'histoire de los angeles splendeur et de los angeles décadence d'un homme de lettres et d'un homme du siècle, Charles Demailly, triste héros qui, après avoir tenté trois fois sa likelihood, dans le journalisme, los angeles littérature et le mariage, finit son life dans un asile de fous. Dans ce roman à clés paru en 1860, les frères Goncourt s'attaquent à los angeles bohème littéraire, incarnée par los angeles presse à scandale - ce " monde carotteur de los angeles pièce de cinq francs ", affairiste et malhonnête, qu'ils dénoncent dans leur magazine. En mettant en scène, sous des noms d'emprunt, leurs contemporains - Théodore de Banville, Théophile Gautier, Jules Barbey d'Aurevilly ou encore Gustave Flaubert -, ils nous plongent dans l'intimité d'un cercle de lettrés. Ils dressent, enfin, une véritable cartographie du plaisir parisien, et nous promènent dans les théâtres, les bals et les cafés, partout où règne los angeles " blague ", parole vide et gonflée d'air comme los angeles blague à tabac qui lui a donné son nom. Si Charles Demailly déchaîna les foudres des evaluations - Adolphe Gaïffe s'opposa à sa parution, " au nom de l'honneur des lettres et de l. a. considération du journalisme " -, il n'en demeure pas moins une pièce fondatrice de l'œuvre des Goncourt. Ainsi que l'écrivait George Sand aux deux frères : " Votre livre est très beau, et vous avez un grand, un énorme expertise. "
