Marceau – First Historical Gay French Revolutionary Novel #HistFic Historical Fiction

by on Oct.22, 2013, under French Historical Fiction

I have to say that Maurice (my protagonist) came to me in a repeated dream for a period of three years. I kept seeing this man handsomely dressed sitting across me in a carriage which was upholstered so beautifully in silk. He had a powdered wig on and wore a silk blue-grey suit with breeches too. He spoke to me in French and I replied back in French (but I don’t know French!). He kept telling me he was a back-channel financier from France who funded several heads of state and sovereigns.  Then he mentioned this war (between Carl Gustav and Katherine the Great) which I wrote about in the book as well) that he allowed to happen and it could have been stopped by him and his peers.  I think he felt bad about that. He said he didn’t like war because the soldiers to both sides and their families were the most affected. Their lives shattered and lost to ill health and lack of limb. He told me his name was Maurice Henri something something Marceau (I never got his name correctly — way too long for me to remember even after dreaming this very dream over and over. The dream never changed.
