Mary Shelley


Mary Shelley's own life was as dramatic as her fiction. Drawing on unexplored sources, this widely acclaimed biography presents a picture of a woman misunderstood, intense, loyal, generous; a woman possessed of a dark and brilliant imagination which gave the public a Frankenstein myth for her time and for today.
