Summary
"Working away in two rooms on an obscure street is Restif de la Bretonne, an eccentrice 'underground' writer whose salacious works have earned him the title of 'the Rousseau of the gutter' and 'the Voltaire of the chambermades' ... In My Revolution, Alex Karmel has brought to life a fascinating man and a turbulent era with absolute authenticity and wry humor. The six decisive years [of the Revolution] are seen through Restif's eyes, his private concerns interwoven with the great upheaval. Always personal, the narrative shows the development of a revoutionary sensibility. In his more intimate refelations, Restif, the 'Nocturnal Spectator, ' displays a frankness that reminds us that sex, like revolution, is not a twentieth-century invention."--Jacket
