The Conversation by Jean d'Ormesson

translated by Timothy Bent
Received for review

3.5 stars
r- 2.5?
A little stilted, possibly because of the translation, possibly because it's all things Napoleon actually said worked into a dialogue.
Overall, really interesting and quick read, though the sidebar about the second consul's sexuality seemed odd and out of place.
