Product description


'A completely fascinating and disturbing story written with consummate elegance and unsettling power. A forgotten corner of 20th-century history brilliantly revealed to us.' --William Boyd<br /><br />'An astonishing audacious book -- a marvellous account of a woman who both felt and challenged the madness of her age.' --Declan Kiberd<br /><br />'A deeply felt account of an undoubtedly tragic life.' --John Carey

'Gibson has languished amid the footnotes to history, but in Saunders she's found a skilful, ardent champion. ... a consistently entertaining work that's part biography, part anecdotal social commentary and part political analysis that cast an appraising eye on the way British politicians got it so incredibly wrong in the early 20th century ... Chatty, intelligent and frequently surprising, The Woman Who Shot Mussolini is that wonderful thing: history delivered with the breathtaking pace of a novel.' --Lee Randall, Scotsman

'In pages of crisp, limpid prose, Saunders brilliantly captures the Irishwoman's spirit and what she might have been. The Woman Who Shot Mussolini is a book of commemoration as well as a documentary, and one of the finest studies of Italian fascism I have read.' --Ian Thomson, Observer

Book Description
