Madame Tussaud A Novel of the French Revolution Read ✓ 104 The world knows Madame Tussaud as a wax artist extraordinaire but who was this woman who became one of the most famous sculptresses of all time In these pages her tumultuous and amazing story comes to life as only Michelle Moran can tell it The year is 1788 and a revolution is about to beginSmart and ambitious Marie Tussaud has learned the secrets of wax sculpting by working alongside her uncle in their celebrated wax museum the Salon de Cire From her popular model of the American ambassador Thomas Jefferson to her tableau of the royal family at dinner Marie's museum provides Parisians with the very latest news on fashion gossip and even politics Her customers hail from every walk of life yet her greatest dream is to attract the attention of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI; their stamp of approval on her work could ca. Find this and other reviews at m willing to bet there are readers who disagree with me but I think Michelle Moran a fabulous writer Her style has a way of drawing you in and though I ve no idea how she manages to relate a lot of history without sounding like a college professor Honestly folks I had a lot of trouble putting Madame Tussaud down and suspect I d have been glued to the couch my entire reading if not for the demands of a one year old My obvious appreciation aside I will admit there are elements I found slightly disappointing To begin with Mademoiselle Grosholtz would be a far accurate title for this piece The story begins in 1788 and takes readers through 1795 the year Marie married Tussaud who really isn t much of a character come to think of it The remaining 55 years of Marie s life are noted but feel much like an afterthought which was frustrating as I find her life in England very interesting even compared to her time in France The book is a wonderful story of the French Revolution I just don t think it a particularly good novel of Marie and her life s work Another thing that bothered me was how little we see Marie indulging her artistic talents A Royal Likeness also omitted the details but I desperately wanted a scene in which Marie is seen molding the wax painting the figures or creating a tableaux I wanted to witness her passion for crafting and feel cheated that Moran never took readers into Marie s workroom There is plenty of detail regarding the business itself the financial aspects and daily operation of ticket sales and managing customers but I think it might have been nice to explore the effort that went into manufacturing a figure and the pride of the artist when her work was finally set of display I was also confused by Marie s sympathies for the royal family I understand her personal relationship with them but the fact that she felt for them than her neighbors and peers left me scratching my head Shouldn t those relationships have caused intense conflict People she loves were in danger on both sides but only one came through the narrative On the same note I would think the disparity between social classes would have made Marie sympathetic to men like Marat and Robespierre at least until their ideas took on a life of their own and led Paris into utter chaos After all Marie was a common woman and might have seen merit in some of their ideas despite the radical nature of their tactics I ve listed many complaints but please know they are minor at best Moran s work is excellently atmospheric and filled with memorable characters and genuine tension There are things I felt missing from the novel but Madame Tussaud is still fantastic a fiction and one I d highly recommend to anyone interested in the French Revolution
