The Pleasure of Eliza Lynch
by Anne Enright
- 240 PAGES
A richly detailed novel, inspired by the dalliance between Elisa Lynch and the Paraguayan dictator Francisco Solano Lopez. Not quite a bodice-ripper, the Irish-born author's third book opens with the ambitious heroine in Paris in bed with the 26-year-old Lopez. Madam Lynch, who stood by the increasingly insane Lopez during the disastrous Paraguayan war, is sometimes compared with Eva Peron.
