Parlor Games is an extremely well-written novel by first-time author Maryka Biaggio. Who was the real May Dugas? We'll never really know but this book creates an unforgettable portrait of a woman who lived a most interesting life in the late 1800s/early 1900s. I recommend it enthusiastically.

“Parlor Games is a captivating tale narrated by the irresistible and deliciously unreliable con-woman May Dugas. Her escapades, which span the Gilded Age right through the turn of the century, immediately transport the reader to a bygone era. It’s a wildly entertaining and constantly surprising ride.” Daisy Goodwin, New York Times bestselling author of American Heiress
