A Storm in the Stars:
A novel about Mary Shelley
her childhood, her passionate love affair with the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, their radical politics and transformative art… and the writing of Frankenstein, a book that stunned the world.
“With A Storm in the Stars, Don Zancanella brings the high stakes lives of the Shelley couple to turbulent life. This is a moving account of the making of a writer – of two writers – and the high-achieving early nineteenth century community of which they were a part.”
—Fiona Sampson, author of In Search of Mary Shelley
“Don Zancanella breathes fresh life into the radical enchantment of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley and Percy Shelley—one of the great love stories of all time.”
—Samantha Silva, author of Love and Fury: A Novel of Mary Wollstonecraft
“A panoramic sweep through the lives and viewpoints of the Shelley circle, this compassionate novel is beautifully told.”
—Alix Hawley, author of All True Not a Lie In It
