  The Lady and Her Monsters The Lady and Her Monsters
by Roseanne Montillo


Told with the verve and ghoulish fun of a Tim Burton film, The Lady and Her Monsters is a highly entertaining blend of literary history, lore, and early scientific exploration that traces the origins of the greatest horror story of all time—Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

"[Montillo's] narrative... rattles enjoyably through a lurid and restless landscape. ...Equally a literary and a scientific endeavor."—The Wall Street Journal
