My recent obsession with Marie Antoinette (the movie really - have massive girl crush on Sofia Coppola) has melded with my obsession with tragic biographies and its MARVELOUS! Usually refuse to read any biographies about people before 1875 as a rule and royals are especially awful due to pages about lineage, Lady Antonia Fraser's Marie Antoinette is LOVELY and a very easy read. And makes me feel relatively intelligent. All good things. Off to work - ICK.
