Praise

“What makes it gripping reading is not only that it offers a rare view of 19th-century French society from the bottom up; it is also written from the perspective of a lifetime’s experience. He both suffers and celebrates his suffering as the price of his nonconformity. A fascinating account.”—Alan Riding, New York Times Book Review

“Linda Asher has now given Déguignet a splendidly faithful English voice: pugnacious, tetchy and opinionated.”—David Coward, London Review of Books

“Never a dull moment in his company. Must be read.”—Le Telegramme
