This novelized biography brings Alice Guy back to us, all of her determination, her creativity, her passion, her flaws, and her glory.
This book provides a close analysis of the one hundred Guy Blaché films that survive, and in the process rewrites early cinema history.

Alison McMahan is the author of the award-winning Alice Guy Blaché, Lost Visionary of the Cinema (Bloomsbury, 2002) and The Films of Tim Burton: Animating Live Action in Hollywood (Bloomsbury, 2005). She produces documentaries for Homunculus Productions, and writes screenplays and fiction.
