monster: the story of a young mary shelly by M.R. Arnold

Biographical Historical fition, 232 PP

An assumed, yet well-researched, backstory on how and why a young woman of privileged means in the early 1800’s could write a novel like Frankenstein. Which comes first? Creativity or madness? Does one drive the other? Great book club selection, too, especially for an October read. Monster – The Story of a Young Mary Shelley

Costume Fun for an October Book Club Meeting
