It is 1789, and three young provincials have come to Paris to make their way. Georges-Jacques Danton, an ambitious young lawyer, is energetic, pragmatic, debt-ridden--and hugely but erotically ugly. Maximilien Robespierre, also a lawyer, is slight, diligent, and terrified of violence. His dearest friend, Camille Desmoulins, is a conspirator and pamphleteer of genius. A charming gadfly, erratic and untrustworthy, bisexual and beautiful, Camille is obsessed by one woman and engaged to marry another, her daughter. In the swells of revolution, they each taste the addictive delights of power, and the price that must be paid for it.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Hilary MantelPublisher: Picador USAPublished: 11/14/2006ISBN: 9780312426392Pages: 749Weight: 1.28lbsSize: 8.23h x 5.48w x 1.29dReview Citations: New York Times 12/24/2006 pg. 20Library Journal 02/01/2007 pg. 108
