Sofia Coppola based her script for Marie Antoinette the movie (due out in October with Kirsten Dunst) on Antonia Fraser's Marie Antoinette: The Journey. Liz Smith tipped us off to the marvelous and nearly impossible-to-find 1932 biography by Stefan Zweig, Portrait of an Average Woman (thank God for Amazon!). And this spring comes Marie Antoinette Style from Assouline.
