George Sand: The secret diary of a Lioness

An original and surprising look at the good Lady of Nohant through the inspired writing of Catherine Hermary-Vieille, who lends her words to George Sand in order to evoke her great loves, Chopin and Musset.

In this biographical novel, Catherine Hermary-Vieille subtly revisits George Sand’s main loves – Musset and Chopin – and lends the author of The Devil’s Pool a remarkable voice that evokes her pain, sentimental weaknesses and even her wildest passions in an intimate fashion never used before.

Conversely, the words of her daughter Solange, with whom she had a rather conflictual relationship, express another vision of Sand’s loves, and bring to the forefront the painful regard of a child starved of affection.
