The Strange Case of Mademoiselle P. Summary

The Strange Case of Mademoiselle P. by Brian O'Doherty

'So gripping that one reads it at a gallop, almost frantically waiting for more revelations and turns in the story. All in all a brilliant performance' Edward Said In this mysterious and haunting novel, Booker shortlisted author Brian O'Doherty takes the reader from the hushed clinic of the controversial physician Dr Franz Anton Mesmer to the scheming Habsburg court of Maria Theresa of Austria. A gripping tale of good versus evil and of intrigue in high places, all set against the Age of Enlightenment. A spellbinding performance.

The Strange Case of Mademoiselle P. Reviews

"'So gripping that one reads it at a gallop, almost frantically waiting for more revelations and turns in the story. All in all a brilliant performance' - Edward Said 'Taking historical personalities like toys from a box and giving them new life is the most creative way of playing (in the best sense of the term). It gives another dimension to the theme of this book - the conflict between official medicine and "healers" - and shows that no medicine is effective unless it's based on a philosophy of nature' - Gregor von Rezzoli"
