Marie Antoinette: The Portrait of an Average Woman
by Stefan Zweig

book cover

Details

Let's enjoy a rustic french dinner and HAVE OUR CAKE too. Marie
Antoinette may have been the average Paris Hilton of her time, but as the
extraordinary women that we are, we will toast her memory with some
champagne (while we stuff ourselves with cake). Happy Birthday, Stacey!
