The Mistress of Paris  
Mar. 15, 2014
Author:  Catherine Hewitt
Category:  Non-fiction: Biography
Description:  The incredible tale of the bewitching courtesan, the Countess Valtesse de la Bigne, who clawed her way up from humble, impoverished origins to become one of the most sought-after and glamorous women in Paris. Her lovers included countless painters, writers and politicians, while her affairs with women caused a scandal in turn-of-the-century Paris. She was painted by Édouard Manet, she negotiated the country's political affairs with Léon Gambetta, she wrote a novel and in turn inspired the novelist Emile Zola, who immortalised her in his scandalous fiction Nana (1880).
