Description
 
Francine du Plessix Gray (au). Scant attention has been paid to the women closest to the Marquis de Sade: Renee-Pelagie de Sade, his adoring wife, & his powerful mother-in-law, Madame de Montreuil. This account of the scandalous life & the violent times of the Marquis de Sade is by renowned author Francine du Plessix Gray. He brings to life these women & their complex relation to Sade as they dedicated themselves to protecting him from the law curbing his excesses, & ultimately confining him. With immediacy, irony, & verve, the book also conjures up the extravagant hedonism of late-18th-century France, the ensuing terror of the French Revol., & the oppression of the Napoleonic regime under which Sade spent his last decade. A N.Y. Times Notable Book. Illus.
