Friday, we’ll find out if The Hunchback of Notre Dame wins an Independent Audiobook Award. As of the posting of this episode, I don’t know the result. I’ll be sure to let you know during next week’s episode.

Thank you to Annie, from the Join us in France Podcast, who helped with the pronunciations of the French names and phrases for this week’s episode. If you’re interested in France at all, you should check out her show. It’s fantastic.

Last week, we met our hero, Andre-Louis, a lawyer who was born into the upper-ish classes, and sympathized with them. His friend, Phillipe de Vilmorin, was a seminarist, and was seeking redress of grievances for a poor gameskeeper, Mabey, who had been killed for taking a pheasant from a trap on the Marquis de la Tour d’Azyr’s land. The Marquis had ordered that Mabey be shot, and Phillipe was seeking some settlement for poor Mabey’s widow and children.

It seems the injustice in this week’s episode strikes home rather sharply.

And now, Scaramouche, Part 2 of 12, by Raphael Sabatini
