Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
On a story night two hundred years ago, a young woman named Mary waited for inspiration. Her friend, the poet Lord Byron, had challenged her to write a scary story, but no ideas would com. Mary thought back through her life at the eerie things she had seen in her childhood and the losses she had suffered, particularly her mother, who was the type of writer Mary aspired to be. But nothing was as scary as her own imagination. As she drifted off to sleep, she pictured something monstrous, a creature that was so frightening, people would run from it in terror. And when Mary awoke, she had her story. Mary would go on to write the most enduring story of our time, one that has been scarring readers for generations. Now Lynn Fulton and Felicita Sala introduce new readers to the legend of Mary's monster.  From dust jacket.
