Recommended for: French history buffs, books made into films , books made into operas
Read from April 22 to May 12, 2011 — I own a copy, read count: 2

Huxley's non-fiction was an early enthusiam. I own and have read Huxley's Grey Eminence, also on French history.It is as fascinating and well written.Saw Russell's film,The Devils,before I read the book. An opera,a play by John Whiting have been made from Huxley's book. There is a pre-existing book by A. Dumas, which I will seek out.

Penderecki's opera based on Huxley's book. Background on composer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Devi....

Old-Barbarossa Think the Dumas stuff is out of print. This should be it though: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2746


Scott Thank you.


Old-Barbarossa No problem.
