The Woman in White

The Woman in White

Wilkie Collins
Collins

Wilkie Collins's classic thriller took the world by storm on its first appearance in 1859, with everything from dances to perfumes to dresses named in honor of the "woman in white." The novel's continuing fascination stems in part from a distinctive blend of melodrama, comedy, and realism; and in part from the power of its story.—Random House, Inc.

"An absolute classic, featuring among its characters the only heroine in all of literature to have a mustache. A chance encounter with the titular woman leads 3 friends into a dangerous plot to defraud one of them of her inheritance. So good. A forerunner of the whole 'thriller' genre."—Submitted by Mike B., Bookstore
