Frog Music – Emma Donoghue
San Francisco, 1876: a stifling heat wave and smallpox epidemic have engulfed the City.
Deep in the streets of Chinatown live three former stars of the Parisian circus: Blanche, now an exotic dancer at the House of Mirrors, her lover Arthur and his companion Ernest.
When an eccentric outsider joins their little circle, secrets unravel, changing everything – and leaving one of them dead.
Frog Music, inspired by true events, is an evocative novel of intrigue and murder: elegant, erotic and witty.
