Description
The heroine of Daniel Defoe's The Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Famous Moll Flanders is famous for her criminal and sexual adventures, racily portrayed in film, on television, and on the stage. But who was Defoe's inspiration? And what world did she really inhabit? The author of The Floating Brothel, The Ship Thieves and Sweet Water and Bitter follows Moll's tumultuous life from Jacobean England to Jamestown, Virginia, and finds real-life versions of Moll's mother, her amoral 'governess', her many husbands and lovers, and Moll herself. These include Moll Cutpurse: thief, receiver, procuress and gangmaster; Mary Moders, known as the "Kentish Moll" or the "German Princess," who played a distressed noblewoman to hook rich men; and Moll King, a London thief reprieved from death to be transported as a convict to the Virginian plantations.

"[Siān] Rees's skill as a masterful researcher and a story teller truly shines.... Moll Flanders is merely the peg on which she hangs a thoroughly engrossing study of 17th-century life."—BBC History Magazine
