But France did not have a normal government: it had a collection of caffeinated intellectuals conducting passionate nonstop shouting matches in the former royal riding school of the Tuileries palace.

This biography of Alex Dumas, the father of Alexandre Dumas, is anything but dry history. Reading about the son of a black slave who rises to prominence in the late eighteenth century is already engaging, and Reiss tells the story with a contemporary flair. Dumas‘s “new digs” are behind the Louvre and then there‘s this great beginning to a sentence: “Sexual adventure was trendy in 1784.”

At this hour, Marie is still queen of the gorgeous kingdom, where we see brilliant Christmas Forests everywhere, rivers of sugar finer than snow and more transparent than ice. And finally, all kinds of magnificent and miraculous things—provided your eyes are sharp enough to see them.
