Literary Agent. Be prepared. Donoghue is going to take you into the real world of misfits of the San Francisco of It isn't ruffles and lace. Before you close this book, you will frequent a tawdry burlesque, you'll retrieve your baby from a caregiver who has left tens of children to lie in their own waste, you will befriend a woman who catches frogs in the mud and muck, and you will, finally, dare to cast off your sycophant boyfriend who spends his days gambling away your hard-earned money.
It's not a pretty world. But it is, I suspect, very, very real. Here at Walmart. Your email address will never be sold or distributed to a third party for any reason.

Manufacturers, suppliers and others provide what you see here, and we have not verified it. See our disclaimer. Through the window of a railroad saloon, a young woman named Jenny Bonnet is shot dead.
The survivor, her friend Blanche Beunon, is a French burlesque dancer. Over the next three days, she will risk everything to bring Jenny's murderer to justice--if he doesn't track her down first.
The story Blanche struggles to piece together is one of free-love bohemians, desperate paupers, and arrogant millionaires; of jealous men, icy women, and damaged children. It's the secret life of Jenny herself, a notorious character who breaks the law every morning by getting dressed: a charmer as slippery as the frogs she hunts. Full of songs that migrated across the world, Emma Donoghue's lyrical tale of love and bloodshed among lowlifes captures the pulse of a boomtown like no other.
