This is a mimoir of a french courtesan written between 1919 and 1941. She had many adventures and met many interesting people then turned to God in the end. Marcel Proust was her acquaintance, Colette, Mac Jacob. There are graphic pieces of her sexual liaisons with both men and women. French culture and the society of the first half of the twentieth century is something that will be explored in this journal which is being passed off as the first step towards saint hood by the woman's confesser. I dunno if she'll make sainthood but she does make an interesting read. I love the describtions of dresses and foods of the different times.

Written between 1919 and 1941;. dePougy's memoir serves up a voyeristic feast of high society living. A bit had to get in to for me in places but over all, I enjoyed it.
