NAKED IN THE MARKETPLACE: The Lives of George Sand

BENITA EISLER    Book Number: 83176    Product format: Paperback

The first European bestselling novelist, George Sand was the French author of nearly 90 works of fiction, 20,000 letters and thousands of pages of autobiographical texts and political commentary. The scandal of leaving her husband and children to live in Paris with an 18 year old lover was followed by many liaisons and friendships with talented men such as Alfred de Musset, Chopin with who she lived and wrote One Winter in Mallorca, Balzac and Flaubert. Her genius and passions were intertwined and her biographer masterfully highlights the many triumphs and losses that forged her overwhelming and enduring presence. We join her on long sea voyages, backstage as a guest and reporter with friends like Chopin and Delacroix. She was fascinated by America, especially its native people, and spoke and read English fluently and was a keen student of history and politics, but always an incurable romantic about men. Rare 2006 import, 308pp in paperback.
