Jarry was probably best known not just for his play "Ubu Roi," but also for breakfasting on wine, regularly biking 80 miles while hydrating himself on absinthe, usually shod in his gal pal Rachilde's old shoes, and died of tuberculosis at the age of 34 so deeply in debt that Charlotte was compelled to sell her property and live the remainder of her life as a charwoman. (See Alastair Brotchie's Alfred Jarry (2011).). Bookseller Inventory # 607
