The Skull of Charlotte Corday

(1995)
A collection of stories by

 
This brilliant collection of short stories descends into the deeper recesses of the human mind and maps the bizarre byways of human history. The title story tells the true tale of the assassin who murdered the French revolutionary leader Jean Paul Marat in his bath. After a public execution, Corday's skull found its way into the hands of Princess Marie Bonaparte, who was to become a pioneer psychoanalyst. Leslie Dick skillfully interweaves the stories of these two women, their lives linked by the macabre trophy.
