Mary Morrissy - The Pretender

Mary Morrissy’s delightfully subtle new novel tells the story of Franziska Schanzkowska, the Polish peasant who, after two years of incarceration in a Berlin asylum, claims to be Anastasia, the fourth and only surviving daughter of the Tsar of Russia.
This is a joyous, poignant and thought-provoking read. Amid much contemporary dross it is good to have such a gem.
