About This Book

It was his intention to trade a few sword-thrusts in some place or another, and get the business over with.

A sparkling new translation tells the tale of a young libertine who finds his rapier wit matched by actual rapiers.

In this autobiographical tale, a young dandy is forced to flee his hometown after falling afoul of the authorities. But sheltering in the royal court he finds treachery and insult and is even- tually positioned into a meaningless confrontation over a woman he cares nothing about. Told with debonair wit and a merciless attitude toward high society, the tale becomes a tense adventure that leads to a surprising outcome.
