Winning the 2015 National Book Critics Circle Award for Biography, this groundbreaking dual biography pairs English feminist Mary Wollstonecraft (author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman) and the daughter she never knew, Mary Shelley, the Romantic visionary who gave the world Frankenstein. In alternating chapters that read like a historical novel, Charlotte Gordon takes readers on a vivid journey across revolutionary France and Victorian England, interweaving the lives of her two protagonists as each in her time fights against the injustices that women faced. Gordon also paints remarkable portraits of the men in their lives, including Percy Shelley, Lord Byron, and William Godwin.
