Join us in the grandiose surroundings of the Etruscan Room for another edition of our Book Club, as we discuss ‘Monsieur Venus’ by Rachilde.


About the book: Monsieur Venus is a novel written by the French symbolist and decadent writer Rachilde. The novel tells the story of French noblewoman Raoule de Vénérande and her pursuit of sexual pleasure while creating a new and more satisfying identity for herself. In order to escape the ennui and malaise of her tradition-bound upper class existence, she must subvert and transcend social class, gender roles, and sexual morality.
