Madame Tussaud: A Novel of the French Revolution

Madame Tussaud: A Novel of the French Revolution - Michelle Moran Bloody hell.... that is, this book is bloody and hellish in the telling of the French Revolution. There are undoubtedly gorier and more explicit accounts of that time in French history, but even so, this was gruesome enough. This historical novel tells it from the perspective of Marie Grosholtz, the famous wax modeler, who later upon marriage, became known as Madame Tussaud. Wax museums in her name dot the globe, but her rise to stardom was anything but shiny -- it was a matter of survival.
