I adore anything by Dumas (no secret there). I read the Penguin Classics translated by Robin Buss, and we talk about that frequently at GR. Pretty much everyone I know considers the Buss translation the one to choose.Come to think of it, I should give it a re-read. It's been at least three decades. Misfit, what translation do you recommend? I have no idea which one I first read.
Speaking of Dumas, a great lesser known of his is The Two Dianas, loosely based on Diane de Poitiers and a fictional daughter she bore to Henri. I'd have to hunt down my old review to remember all of it, but a seriously rocking good read. Some laugh out loud moments, but some real tragic stuff as well. I recommend hunting down the old 1910 Collier Editions (two volumes about 800 pgs total). The US libraries do still have them.
