FINALIST in THE MILES FRANKLIN AWARD
Olympe de Gouges, known as 'Fury', was an actress, playwright and outspoken critic of the Great Men of the French Revolution during the 1790s.
Historical fact and present day fiction are intertwined in this novel when Alice plays the role of Olympe de Gouges in a theatre production.
‘It is a book that should be published in London and New York and even in Paris.
It deserves the best treatment.’
Geoffrey Dutton, Australian Book Review
Dennis Davison, The Australian
‘The intention of this novel is highly serious…the method is teasing and highly enjoyable.’
Carmel Bird, The Australian Book Review
