Woman, a Man, and Two Kingdoms by Steegmuller, Francis
Woman, a Man, and Two Kingdoms: The Story of Madame d'Epinay and the Abbe Galiani
by Steegmuller, Francis
 
Pre-revolutionary Paris comes to life in this fascinating story surrounding the correspondence between two colorful and witty society figures: the French author Louise d'pinay and the Italian priest-diplomat Ferdinando Galiani. Their friends included Voltaire, Diderot, Melchior Grimm, and the famous women of the salons, and their letters touched upon everything from social gossip to issues of education and politics. Francis Steegmuller's book is at once a unique history and a charming account of friendship sustained in a turbulent age.
