In The Only Son, Stéphane Audeguy resurrects Rousseaus forgotten brother in a picaresque tale that brings to life the secret world of eighteenth-century Paris.Instructed at an early age in the philosophy of libertinage by a decadent aristocrat and later apprenticed to a clock maker, François is ultimately disowned by his family and flees to Pariss underworld.

There he finds work in a brothel that caters to politicians and clergy and begins his personal study of the varieties of sexual desire—to its most arcane proclivities. Audeguy uses the libertines progress to explore the interplay between the individual and society, much in the tradition of Jean-Jacques, but with a very different emphasis. Bold, erotic, and historically fascinating, The Only Son is, in many ways, the anti-Confessions—François own, decidedly different, portrait of human nature.
