Synopsis

Shortlisted for the Polari First Book Prize 2014 Mesdames et Messieurs, presenting La Petite Mort, or, A Little Death ...A silent film, destroyed in a fire in 1914 at the Pathe studio, before it was seen even by its director. A lowly seamstress, who makes the costumes she should be wearing, but believes her talent - and the secret she keeps too - will soon get her a dressing room of her own. A famous - and dashing - creator of spectacular cinematic illusions, husband to a beautiful, volatile actress, the most adored icon of the Parisian studios. All fit together, like scenes in a movie. And as you will see, this plot has a twist we beg you not to disclose ...
