Mary Shelley never knew her mother, Mary Wollstonecraft, who died two weeks after giving birth to her in 1797. Yet, as this dual biography demonstrates, the author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman and the visionary who gave the world Frankenstein had much in common. Both defied convention, had several passionate relationships, bore children out of wedlock, lived in exile abroad, and challenged the injustices faced by women. American-cut pages and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
