Master of realism Honore de Balzac highlights his brilliant knack for character development in the short story "Madame Firmiani." The story's plot is slight, dealing in large part with the mysterious identity of Madame Firmiani's husband. As always, where Balzac truly shines is in delving into the nuance of human behavior and personality.

Excerpt from A Start in Life; Madame Firmiani; The Message; The Atheist's Mass Touchards, father and son, ordinarily enlisted in their support the sympathies of those inhabiting the places which they served. Thus the venturer, at the same time conductor and owner of the coach, was an innkeeper in the locality and was familiar with its beings, things and interests. He attended to errands intelligently, he did not ask very much for his small services, and on that very account got more than the Messageries Touchard. He knew how to elude the necessity of a transportation per mit. If need be, he infringed on the ordinances regarding the passengers to be carried. In fine, he had won the affection of the ordinary folk. And so, when competition was set up, if the old carrier of the country shared the week-days with it, some persons delayed their journey so as to make it in company with the antique coach-driver, though his rig and horses were in a condition that was by no means likely to inspire confidence.
