Item description for Memoirs of Duc de Saint-Simon, 1710-1715: The Bastards Triumphant by Lucy Norton...
Saint Simon kept a journal during the 30 plus years he was a peer at the French court. He spent his retirement writing his memoirs, a first-hand account of the train-wreck that eventually lead to the French Revolution. When he died, his memoirs were confiscated by order of the King. The French government did not release them until 1830. Many of Saint-Simon's letters are possibly still being held.

Each book gets better and better Jan 24, 2008
I am the publisher. No kidding, I quit my job and started a publishing company so I could make The Memoirs of Duc de Saint-Simon readily available. As a lifetime reader, I was struck at how much this work reminded me of epic fiction. It has a great story line, opulant setting, bizzare characters, and one of the most compelling and funniest narrators you'll ever read...and it really happened!
This is book two in the three book set, and if you've read book one, I can tell book two takes it up a notch. Now that the scene at the court of Louis XIV has been set, and the mesmerizing cast of characters have been introduced, you can't help but get sucked in to the corrupt and debauched world Saint-Simon lives in. You will not be disappointed.
