"Society’s favorite version of the single woman is the Grande Dame...She is post-menopausal, and therefore sexually unthreatening, as well as wealthy and accomplished, though not necessarily professionally...Were a grande dame a building, she would be the opulent Park Plaza Hotel but not the equally imposing, serious-minded Library of Congress." I want to be the Library of Congress when I grow up.

VOLUME 1 COMPLETE!

Initial thoughts:
- war sections < peace sections
- I actually understand about 30% of the French without needing the translations!
- Russian patronymics are cool
- no really: war < peace
