Who was the mysterious Madame de Mentou? And what was her real name? These are the questions which the writer Thomas Fenman addresses in a brief memoir which was written a few months before his death.
Fenman, who lived from 1761-1837, had a long and successful career as a novelist. But, although famous and widely read in his day, he was soon forgotten after his death. Now his puzzling memoir is made available for the first time.
