The Sun King

The Sun King

by Nancy Mitford

  • HISTORY
  • 2012
  • PAPER
  • 255 PAGES

This opulent, celebrated biography of Louis XIV illuminates the life of the mercurial monarch, and the dazzling coterie of courtisans and mistresses that surrounded him. Gracefully written in a witty, conversational style, Mitford's book, originally published and 1966 and reissued after a decade out of print, brings Versailles to vibrant life.  (FRN33, $16.95)
