Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once he was André-Louis Moreau, a lawyer raised by nobility, unconcerned with the growing discontent among France's lower class — until his best friend is mercilessly struck down by a member of the aristocracy.

Now, he is Scaramouche. Speaking out against the unjust French Government, he takes refuge with a nomadic band of acting improvisers where he assumes the role of Scaramouche The Clown — a comic figure with a very serious message.

Set during the French Revolution, this novel of swashbuckling romance is also a thought-provoking commentary on class, inequality, and the individual's role in society — a story that has become Rafael Sabatini's enduring legacy.

Review:

"Delightfully courtly, flowery but not dated, Sabatini's period romances...were deservedly popular when originally published, during the 20s and 30s." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[H]as all the elements that made his books such appealing movies: sword fights, swooning damsels, class conflict, and melodramatic revelation." Kirkus Revies

Synopsis:

A vigorous, page-turning historical romance set in revolutionary-era France.

About the Author

Rafael Sabatini was born in Italy, in 1875, to two opera singers, and often joined his parents on their professional tours of Europe. In 1918, he became a British subject and worked for the British Intelligence during World War I. He published his first novel, The Lovers of Yvonne, at the age of 27, and continued to produce numerous historical novels, short stories, plays, screenplays, and some biographies. Scaramouche was first published in 1921, followed by Captain Blood in 1922. Sabatini died in 1950, while vacationing at a Swiss ski resort.
