The erotically-charged memoirs of the transvestite Abbe de Choisy are both an entertaining record of his exuberant life and a scathing commentary on manners and morals in 17th century French society. This edition includes de Choisy's semi-autobiographical short story of the Marquise-Marquis de Banneville.
