Richardson pens a colorful portrait of twelve of the most famous courtesans; women who encrusted bathroom taps with jewels, fought duels in the Bois de Boulogne, scandalized society, influenced the press and politics, and ensnared the husbands and lovers of the most beautiful women in Paris.

About the Author:

Writer and critic Joanna Richardson was born in London. She is a founder member of the Royal Society of Literature. As a biographer Joanna Richardson has received critical attention for her life-accounts of some of nineteenth-century France's most noted writers. Included among these are her portraits of poets Paul Verlaine and Baudelaire and France's famous women of letters, Colette and Judith Gautier, for which she won the 1989 Prix Goncourt, the first non-French winner in the prize's history.
