About this product
- DescriptionCaptures all the bliss and folly of Mary Shelley s disastrous surrender to love, and the sorrowful steps by which she became the author ofFrankenstein. NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW In 1814, poet Percy Shelley enters the life of young Mary Godwin like an angel of deliverance. Seduced by his radical and romantic ideas, she flees with him to Europe, where they mingle with other free-spirited artists and poets. Frowned on by family and society, Mary becomes haunted by hideous visions and as tragedy strikes, she realizes her dreams have become nightmares, and her angel . . . a monster. Has the time come for Mary Shelley to set her monster free?
- Author BiographyVERONICA BENNETT began her writing career as a freelance journalist when her two children were small. She soon moved into fiction, and her first novel was published in 1998. These days, the children are grown, and she works part-time as a college English lecturer. ANGELMONSTER, she says, came about during a lesson on recasting classic novels for children. The text under discussion was FRANKENSTEIN, and I began to think about doing a book for children based on the early life of the author, revealing only at the end that she would go on to write FRANKENSTEIN when she grew up. An idea was born, but when I began the research, I realized that the dramatic events of Mary Shelley s life lent themselves much better to a more grown-up story. Veronica Bennett lives in England. This is her first book with Candlewick Press.
