His Lordship's vast and uncensored imagination conjured up this giant of a man with a face like a "diamond hatchet" and an appetite that included everything from "chicks - carefully woven together" to "rump of small boy." In his shadow exploring epic L'Histoire de Juliette, the real Marquis de Sade presented Minski as a Russian giant who eats the flesh of humans, which he generously offers to his guests (does that sound a shade familiar?) Sade was said to have based his portrait of Minksi on a mythical personage from the murky waters of Russian folklore.
