Where do I start with Ballsack? Does /lit/ have author charts like /mu/ does?
I'm specially interested in his works that reflect his time the best.
I've only read Lost Illusions but it's one of my very favorites by anyone, ever. People would tell you to start with Le Pere Goriot.
The Balzac rule of thumb seems to be that we should just pick any of his notable works, because they're all good.
