One thing about Therese Humbert is clear: she was, in her own way, a genius. She was also a liar, a megalomaniac, and a swindler of the highest order. In the tradition of The Professor and the Madman, this fascinating account describes the astounding life of a 19th-century eccentric: a woman who lifted herself out of poverty by posing as a wealthy aristocrat. She became the toast of Paris, living life on a grand scale. Only at the end of her life was Therese revealed for what she truly was: an impoverished fraud. This brilliantly written book offers an unforgettable look into the life of one of the greatest con artists in history.
