This imaginary journal complements Evelyne Lever's highly praised and very readable biography of Marie Antoinette (just published in the U.S. by Farrar, Straus) which has been translated into several languages. Evelyne Lever has taken the original diary of Marie Antoinette and, thanks to her extensive knowledge of her subject and the Ancien Régime, has rewritten the journals and made them accessible to the modern reader. The result is a fascinating, gripping read about the inner life of France's last queen: her few joys in life, court intrigue, her desperate desire to please and her suffering due to an unreciprocated love for her husband, Louis XVI.
