It is 1789, and three young provincials have come to Paris to make their way. Georges-Jacques Danton, an ambitious young lawyer, is energetic, pragmatic, debt-ridden—and hugely but erotically ugly. Maximilien Robespierre, also a lawyer, is slight, diligent, and terrified of violence. His dearest friend, Camille Desmoulins, is a conspirator and pamphleteer of genius. A charming gadfly, erratic and untrustworthy, bisexual and beautiful, Camille is obsessed by one woman and engaged to marry another, her daughter. In the swells of revolution, they each taste the addictive delights of power, and the price that must be paid for it.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Mantel’s writing is so exact and brilliant that, in itself, it seems an act of survival, even redemption.”

    New Yorker

  • “Brilliant, edgy historical fiction that captures the whiplash flux of the French Revolution with crisp immediacy on the page.”

    Seattle Times

  • “An epic of extraordinary detail and depth…[it] moves beyond the realm of an absorbing yarn into the arena of a literary masterpiece.”

    Booklist

  • “Massively impressive, painstakingly detailed saga of the French Revolution as its leaders lived it…Re-creating the fullness of history with its wealth of human faces and failings, this is a lively, engrossing tale of power, glory, and despair.”
