    Currently living in Paris and occasionally walking through the Place des Innocents, I was intrigued when I first heard about this book. From the very first page, I knew I was in for an intensely engaging story. What is most remarkable about this novel, for me, is Miller's masterful use of language to evoke a mood: "He does not light a candle—he sits on the bed on the cool almost-dark as though wrapped in the purple heart of a flower." Poetry! If you're interested in the history of France just before the deluge, read this. You will be transported.
