Summary
Created as an amusement to beguile his friend, the Marquis de Croismare, Diderot's classic work blends a gripping plot with a licentious portrayal of sexual fervour & a damning attack on oppressive religious institutions. He tells the story of Suzanne Simonon, forced into a nunnery because of illegitimacy
