This week, we’re giving away a copy of fascinating new true crime biography A Scandal in Bohemia – The Life and Death of Mollie Bean by Gideon Haigh.
Creatively ambitious and sexually precocious, Mollie Bean was a poet, aspiring novelist and muse within Melbourne’s bohemian salons in the early 20th century – until one night in 1930 when she was brutally slain by an unknown killer in a laneway while walking home.
In A Scandal in Bohemia, Gideon Haigh explodes the true crime genre with a murder story about life as well as death. Armed with only a single photograph and echoes of Mollie’s voice, he has reassembled the precarious life of a talented woman without a room of her own – a true outsider, excluded by the very world that celebrated her in its art.
