Life Mask - Emma Donoghue
In a time of looming war, the wealthy liberals of the Whig Party work to topple a tyrannical prime minister and a lunatic king. Will Eliza Farren, England's leading comedic actress, gain entry to that elite circle that calls itself the World? Can Lord Derby endure public mockery of his long, unconsummated courtship of the actress? Will Anne Damer, a sculptor and rumored Sapphist, be the cause of Eliza's fall from grace?
