What People are Saying About This

Susan Sontag

"The late 18th-century is when Modernite (more exactly the modernities) began. Sterne, Diderot, Rousseau...among the effortlessly brilliant writers of that incandescent era, there still remains Xavier DeMaistre to discover or rediscover. His masterpiece 'Voyage Around My Room', one of the most original and mettlesom autobiographical narratives ever written."

Voyage Around My Room 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
slickdpdx on LibraryThing 8 months ago
Voyage (written at the age of 31) is a clever diversion. The Nocturnal Expedition (at age 62) is meatier and more rewarding. Each is made of tiny chapters with big margins. The Voyage is worth picking up as long as you get an edition with both trips. This edition also has the preface by older brother Joseph De Maistre (at the end of the volume!) and a dialogue between a leper and a soldier entitled The Leper of The City of Aosta.
