Who was the mysterious woman who posed naked for one of Manet's most famous paintings? V.R. Main's first novel is set in the Paris of the 1860s, and explores the passionate relationship between aristocrat artist and working class model.

Victorine Meurent was crucial to the creation of Manet's painting Le déjeuner sur l'herbe. What happened to her? History ignores her or dismisses her as a woman of low morality who died young. As VR Main delves into the minds of the main characters in this stirring psychological drama, she discovers that Victorine's story had quite a different ending.

About the author: V R Main has a PhD in Elizabethan drama, has worked as a journalist (BBC) and a lecturer at Nigerian and British Universities. She has two daughters and lives in London.
