A biography of a man and his eternal search for Beauty. Count Montesquiou was the great arbitrer of style and fashion of Parisian society at the turn of the last century. His luminous circle included Whistler, Sarah Bernhardt and Gabriele d'Annunzio, to name a few. He inspired characters of Wilde and Proust, but most famously as the eccentric Des Esseintes in Huysmans' A rebours. An Athenian by persuasion he still remained mostly celibate, but it was his irony and spitefulness that earned him as many enemies as friends. It seems unreal that ever such a man existed and after reading this fluid text one feels like waking from a dream.
