Richard Remington appears to have it all - a successful career as author and politician, social approval and a wonderful marriage. But looks can be deceiving, especially after he meets Isabel Rivers. Will he be able to resist the temptation ...
Brillat-Savarin (1755 - 1826), a lawyer and politician, was quite possibly the most famous French epicure and gastronome of all. Here he discourses on the pleasures of the table. His reputation was revitalized by his influence over Chairman Kaga of the TV series Iron Chef which introduced to millions the mot "Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are." He is often considered the father of the low-carbohydrate diet.
Generally regarded as the masterpiece of his early writing The Portrait of a Lady has young American Isabel inheriting a large amount of money and gaining freedom to travel the continent. Here she falls under the influence of two expatriate Americans who want her money. The work has met continuing critical acclaim and remains the most popular of James' longer works.
