This novel by the brilliant American poet and novelist Elinor Wylie imagines that instead of drowning, Shelley was rescued and taken to America where he lived out his life.
Novels which take as their subject the life of Percy Bysshe Shelley are few and far between. Lynn Shepherd’s compelling, elegant novel, A Treacherous Likeness, should be on the “must read” list of every person with even a remote interest in the lives of Percy and Mary - I loved every second of it. I have given this novel the RPBS Stamp of a Champ"!!! Order it through your local bookshop!
