    • UNABRIDGED (42 hrs and 10 mins)
    • By Bayle St. John - translator, Louis de Rouvroy Duc de Saint-Simon
    • Narrated By Grover Gardner

    Duc de Louis de Rouvroy Saint-Simon (1675-1755) was a French soldier, diplomat, and noted diarist. A French courtier during the 18th century, today he's best known for his comprehensive multi-volume memoirs, which depict life in France at the time. He was an indefatigable writer, and he began very early to record all the gossip he collected, all his interminable legal disputes over precedence, and a vast mass of unclassified material. He is petty, unjust to private enemies and to those who espoused public views contrary to his, as well as being an incessant gossip.

    Brent Suits says: "Dense but a great book if you are familiar with France during this time "
