New from Joel Warner:

During the last days of the ancien régime, imprisoned in a fetid cell atop the Bastille, a depraved aristocrat composed the most blasphemous novel ever written. But in death, the Marquis de Sade has gone from enemy of the French state to national treasure— a transformation capped in 2014, when the scroll bearing his 120 Days of Sodom sold for $10 million. Now that manuscript is at the center of France’s biggest fraud case.
