              The Fan-Maker's Inquisition: A Novel of the Marquis De Sade

              The Fan-Maker's Inquisition: A Novel of the Marquis De Sade (Paperback)

              By Ducornet, Rikki

              And so begins this lush, historical novel, a mixture of imagination and conceit, of passion and suspense. In a tense courtroom during the French Revolution, a fan-maker is on trial because of her collaboration with the Marquis de Sade. Heads will roll unless the independent fan-m...aker, erotically cast in the shadow of Sade, can justify her art and friendships to a court known for its rigid and prudish proprieties.

              This startling and brilliantly comic novel tells the stories of two men: a father and his estranged son. Lamprias de Bergerac is a gentle mystic and amateur botanist who spends his middle-aged years in an erotic utopia deep in the Amazonian jungle, collecting specimens of rare or...chids and ultimately finding Cucla, the young and free-spirited native woman who has become the love of his life. Meanwhile, his demented son Septimus is raised by his mother in prewar Europe, seething with hatred of the father who abandoned him. He rises to power in Nazi-occupied France, where he goes mad in an obsessive pursuit of racial purity. Rikki Ducornet has a gift for combining the horrific with the hilarious, the realistic with the fantastic. Through a wildly inventive narrative, Entering Fire scrutinizes the sources of fascist mentality in nations and, potentially, in all humans.

              Made speechless by her eccentric father, the beautiful Etheria is traded for a piece of precious jade. Memory, her sister, tells her story, that of a childhood enlivened by Lewis Carroll and an orangutan named Dr. Johnson and envenomed by the pernicious courtship of Radulph Tubbs..., Queen Victoria's own Dragon of Industry. The novel travels from Oxford to Egypt where one million ibis mummies wait to be transformed into fertilizer, where Baconfield the architect will cause a pyramid to collapse, and where a scorned and bloated hunger artist who speaks in tongues will plot a bloody revenge. The fourth element in a tetralogy of novels - Earth (The Stain), Fire (Entering Fire), Water (The Fountains of Neptune) and Air - The Jade Cabinet is both a riveting novel and a reflection on the nature of memory and desire, language and power. Following the novel is an afterword, Waking to Eden , in which Ducornet reflects on the sources for her writing and on the quartet of novels completed by The Jade Cabinet.
