English feminist Mary Wollstonecraft & author Mary Shelley were mother & daughter, yet these two extraordinary women never knew one another. Nevertheless, their passionate & pioneering lives remained closely intertwined, their choices, dreams & tragedies eerily similar.

Romantic Outlaws

Both women became famous writers & wrote books that changed literary history, had passionate relationships with several men, were single mothers out of wedlock; both lived in exile, fought for their position in society, and interrogated ideas of how we should live.

Romantic Outlaws takes the reader on a vivid journey across revolutionary France and Victorian England to explore in this ground-breaking dual biography of the author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman and the author who wrote Frankenstein – mother and daughter – a pair of visionary women, who should have shared a life, but who instead share a powerful literary and feminist legacy.
