The Princesse and the president

This is funny: The president of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, hates the classic 17th century novel “La Princesse de Cléves,” so French people are reportedly flocking to read it as a form of political protest.

If you’re feeling rebellious, too, you can read an English translation of “The Princess of Cleves” at the Project Gutenberg site. (It’s free.) The book is also available at Amazon.com in French and English.
