About the Author

Susannah Wilson is a scholar of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century French culture and literature, with a specialist interest in women's writing; psychoanalytical theory; the history of psychiatry in France; social history; and 'self-writing' (autobiography, memoir, correspondence). She studied for a BA (Hons) in French Studies and a Masters degree at the University of Manchester, and completed her D.Phil. in French at Jesus College, Oxford, in 2005.


her vast knowledge of the contemporary judicial system helps to contextualize them for the uninitiated reader. * Kathy Comfort, French Review *
