Le Bal du comte d'Orgel is the second and last novel by Parisian literary prodigy Raymond Radiguet (1903-1923). Published in 1924 and centering on adultery, it proved controversial, as did his first novel, Le Diable au corps, published in 1923. Le Bal du comte d'Orgel was adapted into a 1970 film.


Mahaut, married to the Count d'Orgel, falls into a torrid romance with François de Séryeuse, a teenager. The Count doesn't realize what is going on between his new friend and his wife.
