Did we want to try again with a new book for January? I have nothing in mind, but I did like the idea of the discussion.

We can do a new book for January Melly. We're sort of in the habit of moving changing from fiction to non-fiction so if anyone has a suggestion for a work of non-fiction for us shout it out now and we'll organise something for the new year :)

André Castelot is a very good historian! :wink:
His books about Marie-Antoinette and Marie-Thérèse are very complete :wink:

Indeed... even if Castelot is not very sympathetic to Marie Antoinette... :?

I picked up Knight of the Maison Rouge by Alexandre Dumas at the library book sale. :) Does anyone have any opinions on it?

It is a novel, so, it must been read with a pintch of salt...

Castelot's book is my absolute favorite and I've had it forever however for a slight change I suggest [u] Versailles The Biography of A Palace]/u] by Tony Spawworth. This book answers all the questions about who got what apartments--promotions, demotions, latrines, baths, cleanliness, the stress of trying to stay near the monarch and maintain your place in society. This book is fascinating and has a bibliography and index--some pictures.
