Product Description

Noted lesbian author Emma Donoghue's latest novel, 'Frog Music', is set against San Francisco's boom period after the California Gold Rush and features a remarkable and colourful of characters inspired by real people and events.

It's 1876, and San Francisco is in the midst of a stifling heatwave and a smallpox epidemic. Gay, cross-dressing frog catcher Jenny Bonnet has been found murdered, and the mystery of how Jenny was shot dead somehow involves her friend (and possibly lover?), Blanche Beunon, a Parisian circus performer turned erotic dancer and prostitute, ''known for movements so obscene that customers spill down Sacramento Street boasting of the banknotes they've thrown under her smooth heels''! Blanche suspects either her lover and pimp, the former acrobat Arthur, or his associate, Ernest, of the murder, as both men resented Jenny's encouraging Blanche to become her own person. At the same time, Jenny, who wears men's clothes and sells frogs to restaurants, is an untamed free spirit who attracts plenty of enemies when she defies the overlords of San Francisco's underworld.

'Frog Music' is an evocative novel of intrigue and murder: elegant, erotic and witty.
