The Raft

UK Publisher: Macmillan

Set in Paris in 1818 during the upheavals of the French Revolution, the Empire and the Restoration, Arabella Edge’s second novel is inspired by the story of Theodore Gericault and his extraordinary struggle to paint his masterpiece, The Raft of Medusa.

This is a tale of grand passion. In prose that vividly evokes its setting, Arabella Edge has brought to life the creation of an epic painting.
