Joseph Roth

The Hundred Days


The story of Napoleon's last snatch at glory is framed both through the eyes of Bonaparte and his infatuated young laundress named Angelina?with rather more said by her about the Emperor's dirty handkerchiefs than the Duke of Wellington. It provides an arch and yet moving look at Napoleon's seemingly triumphant return to Paris from exile in March 1815. Before 100 days have elapsed, fate and war have crushed Napoleon's ambitions and the romantic dreams of his maid. Out of print in English for 70 years, this is a unique and unforgettable work, pitching Napoleon out of Olympian Heights and sending him crashing down to earth, leaving a devoted young lover trailing in his wake.
