Emma Donoghue’s next novel to be set on cross-dressing, frog-catching Jeanne Bonnet
Emma Donoghue’s next novel will be a historical fiction based on the true story of a murdered 19th century cross-dressing frog catcher.
Donoghue revealed the topic of the book at the Lesbian Lives Conference in Brighton on Sunday 13 February 2011.
The novel, which is unfinished and does not yet have an expected publish date, is based on the story of Jeanne Bonnet, a woman from San Francisco who was frequently arrested for wearing men’s clothes, and who was shot and killed by an unknown assailant at the age of 27.
