1893. Frances Bellenden Clarke was born in Ireland. She married a widowed army surgeon, Chambers McFall, with whom she had one son. They traveled extensively in the Far East. As a New Woman velist, she became a leading figure in late nineteenth-century feminism of social and moral purity. In 1890 she left her husband, who did t support her ideas and in 1893 she changed her name to Madame Sarah Grand. That year Heinemann published The Heavenly Twins, which immediately became a controversial bestseller in England and the United States. This triple-decker vel in deploring sexual igrance and hypocrisy in marriage gave a disturbing depiction of a syphilitic wife and baby. The eponymous twins, Angelica and Diablo, served to question gender roles; The Ter and the Boy is a cross-dressing episode. Contents: Childhoods and Girlhoods; A Maltese Miscellany; Development and Arrest of Development; The Ter and the Boy-An Interlude; Mrs. Kilroy of Ilverthorpe; and The Impressions of Dr. Galbraith.
