FRANCINE DU PLESSIX GRAY

MONDAY, JUNE 18; 7 PM @ The Greene
FRANCINE DU PLESSIX GRAY
will discuss her new book, The Queen’s Lover. Few figures intrigue the public’s imagination as much as Marie Antoinette, even centuries after her death. This book gives us a new perspective by revealing in lustrous detail the life-long friendship and romance between Marie Antoinette and the dashing Swedish aristocrat Axel von Fersen. Even as Fersen is forced to be away from her by either duty or propriety, their affection for each other remained a constant throughout their lives. Du Plessix Gray presents an astonishing and deeply moving revisionist portrait of Marie Antoinette and places the reader squarely in the midst of the turbulent times of the French Revolution.
