The Red Dancer: The Life and Times of Mata Hari
Author:

Richard Skinner

Title:

The Red Dancer: The Life and Times of Mata Hari

ISBN:

9780060937799

This debut novel re-examines the spy case of Mata Hari that has bewildered and inspired historians and artists for decades. Mata Hari's story -- narrated in this novel by dozens of historical figures whose lives intersected with hers, from her husband to her executioner -- brilliantly recreates the delicious and eerie decadence of fin-de-siecle Europe. This panoramic portrait re-examines the life of a woman whose trail of invention and betrayal began in exotic Indonesia and seedy dance halls of Paris and ended violently in the most celebrated sex and espionage scandal to shake the diplomatic circles of Europe.<P>With interlinking chapters of fiction and official documents, Richard Skinner explores the mystery of a wife, mother, mistress, artist, and enigmatic double agent while taking a post-modern snapshot of the chilling ambiguity of war.
