Edward Carey

From little beginnings: the extraordinary story of a bloodstained, diminutive crumb of a servant girl who went on to shape the world.

Exuberant and utterly distinctive, Little recalls a momentous stretch of French history through the eyes of Marie Groscholtz, Little survives the harshest of beginnings and most violent of revolutions to craft her place in history.

Little is a stunning artefact of a novel; a wonderfully grisly reimagining of the life and times of Madame Tussaud. Carey weaves a tale of heartfelt sympathy and jet-black humour; eccentric oddity and utter enchantment. Dickensian in style with an unforgettable cast of characters, Little is a masterpiece for modern times.
