9780151009435: Life Mask

A love story. A gamble. A battle. Let the games begin.

It's an era of looming war, and the erosion of freedom in the name of national security. A time of high art and big business, trashy spectacles and financial disasters. Celebrities are hounded by journalists, who serve up private passions alongside public crises. Marriages stretch or break, and so do friendships; political liaisons prove as dangerous as erotic ones. In Parliament, on stage, in the bedroom, at the race track, round the dinner table, old loyalties are wrenched by the winds of change. The World - as elite calls itself - is fighting to survive these chaotic times.

Review:

She. . . makes interesting parallels between the political concerns of the 1790s and those of today ( Guardian)

A born writer ( New York Times Book Review)

. . . another bright, bruising slice of eighteenth-century life in London . . . Why should Michel Faber hog the glory? ( Elle)

Donoghue's latest book pulsates with the vibrancy of London in an era that couldn't be more extravagant. While Mad King George was teetering on the throne, the grotesquely privileged carried on a gaudy social whirl ( Time Out)

Book Description:

From the author of Slammerkin, a gripping historical novel about three famous Londoners - an artist, an actress and an aristocrat - based on a true scandal of 18th century London.

Book Description Harcourt, 2004. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 650 Pages. Book Description Life Mask is the true story of three famous Londoners - an artist, an actress and an aristocrat - at the end of the eighteenth century. This is their love story, their gamble, their battle. Let the games begin. Everybody wears a mask. Hadn't you noticed? We put them on for one very good reason: we dislike our own faces. It's an era of looming war, and the erosion of freedom in the name of national security. A time of high art and big business, trashy spectacles and financial disasters. Celebrities are hounded by journalists, who serve up private passions alongside public crises. Marriages stretch or break, and so do friendships; political liaisons prove as dangerous as erotic ones. In Parliament, on stage, in the bedroom, at the race track, round the dinner table, old loyalties are wrenched by the winds of change. The World - as elite calls itself - is fighting to survive these chaotic times. About the Author Emma Donoghue is an Irish novelist, playwright and historian. She lives in Canada.
