In her hands, bills from Marie's doctors, florist, livery yard and milliner blossom into vivid narrative life. Unlike Dumas, she doesn't romanticise her heroine; she has a bracingly sharp eye for the horrors of even a high-class courtesan's existence, and acknowledges Marie's hardheartedness, as well as her fascination and her vulnerability. Kavanagh's biography of Marie sparkles with affection for a spirited waif who made good in the only way she knew how.

A compelling and moving account of a short, forgotten life which is far more interesting than fiction. The plot is as unlikely as the plots of most operas and as full of mad, melodramatic twists. But its story, it is clear from this extraordinary book, isn't half as melodramatic as the life that inspired it. Kavanagh is a warm, nimble portraitist, wryly chronicling the glittering if doomed realm of the courtesan. Now Duplessis is a muse once again, this time for an adept biographer who elegantly preserves her indelible true story.
Already praised as a biographer, Kavanagh intertwines the adventures of a famous courtesan with a fascinating period in Parisian history, with each scene spotlighting yet another titillating aspect of s bohemia.
A thoroughly researched and fascinating account of Duplessis's short life and lengthy legacy. Her true story has been crying out to be told. Now, at last, the enigmatic Duplessis has found a brilliant biographer in Kavanagh.
