Evening in the Palace of Reason -James Gaines, 3 Jun. 2011
Absolutely wonderful book - so informative, and giving such a fascinating parallel insight into two types of 18th century life - that at the Prussian court, and on a more 'normal' level, in describing the life of one of the greatest ever composers, J S Bach. Beautifully written - I can't wait to read it again!
