In Search of Two Georges
A "literary pilgrim" travels to France and England to re-trace the footsteps of two of the most revolutionary female writers of the 19th century; George Sand (nee Amandine Aurore Lucile Dudevant) and George Eliot (nee Mary Ann Evans), for the Los Angeles Times.
Sand was a cigar-smoking cross-dresser whose lovers included Guy de Maupassant and Frederic Chopin. Eliot was the repressed child of a widowed father who left home to live with a married man.
