about

From Rogue to Everyman chronicles the colourful career of archetypal rogue Charles de Julie, foundling, army deserter, pimp, police officer, underground journalist, poet, and prisoner in the dreaded Bastille. Laurence Bongie reveals both the richly woven tapestry of Ancien Regime social history and a ground-level perspective of everyday material life in eighteenth-century Paris, a city of wit and learning where wealth and luxury were juxtaposed with the most squalid and degrading varieties of human poverty, disease, and crime.
Laurence L. Bongie, professor emeritus of French, University of British Columbia, is the author of many works, including Sade: A Biographical Essay and The Love of a Prince, Bonnie Prince Charlie in France, 1744-1748."
