What ensues is a series of remarkable stories in which the protagonists encounter several characters who may or may not be conspirators in a bombing plot on behalf of Irish independence. The characters weave intriguing and troubling tales of their histories. The chapters stand alone as adventures, but the whole is tied together nicely in the end. There is a strong satirical bent throughout the book, but some of the stories carry hidden political punches as well. The relationship of the various characters is mysterious, yet Stevenson does little to perpetuate the mystery. He is more concerned with the storytelling, and that storytelling is terrific. More than that, I dare not write, as details would quickly expose the interconnected aspects of the stories. Suffice to say that in a book about British wanderers, Stevenson manages to tell tales of murderous Mormons, crazed Voodoo practitioners, and wayward Bohemian princes, among others+-+819527893658233ocn000528220book18970.59Stevenson, Robert LouisThe novels and tales of Robert Louis StevensonBiographyFictionPortraitsRecords and correspondence+-+057946096632433111ocn002565753book19240.53Stevenson, Robert LouisThe works of Robert Louis StevensonHistoryFictionRecords and correspondenceWorks of Robert Louis Stevenson23618ocn000615757book18850.70Stevenson, Robert LouisThe dynamiter : more new Arabian nights22525ocn828932690book18850.35Stevenson, Robert LouisMore new Arabian nights : The dynamiter and The story of a lieWith "The Dynamiter," a series of linked stories written in collaboration with his wife, Fanny Vandergrift, Stevenson returns to the character of Prince Florizel, first introduced in New Arabian Nights .

It is a chance for this adventurous woman to start over, to make a better life for all of them, and to pursue her own desires. Not long after her arrival, however, tragedy strikes, and Fanny and her children repair to a quiet artists' colony in France where she can recuperate. Emerging from a deep sorrow, she meets a lively Scot, Robert Louis Stevenson, ten years her junior, who falls instantly in love with the earthy, independent, and opinionated "belle Americaine." Fanny does not immediately take to the slender young lawyer who longs to devote his life to writing -- and who would eventually pen such classics as Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In time, though, she succumbs to Stevenson's charms, and the two begin a fierce love affair -- marked by intense joy and harrowing darkness -- that spans the decades and the globe8704ocn000711114book19680.27Mackay, Margaret MackprangThe violent friend; the story of Mrs. Robert Louis StevensonBiography7401ocn030738441book19950.21Lapierre, AlexandraFanny Stevenson : a romance of destinyHistoryBiographyFirst published in France where it caused a literary sensation and became an instant bestseller, this is Alexandra Lapierre's celebrated, award-winning biography of Robert Louis Stevenson's wife. One hundred years after his death, Robert Louis Stevenson, author of such classic novels as Treasure Island and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, remains an ever fascinating figure. This is the remarkable story of his wife Fanny, the American woman eleven years his senior who influenced every facet of his life and work, and who remains in her own right one of the most truly independent and free-spirited women of her generation. Stevenson was to devote his life to this woman: he crossed continents in search of her; scandalized his family to marry her; built a life in the Pacific with her; survived tuberculosis because of her; and was encouraged and inspired in his writing by her. He was an unknown twenty-five year old Scotsman when he came across Fanny for the first time in the artists' colony of Barbizon near Paris. A mother of three, Fanny had left her unfaithful husband to come to Europe with her three children to learn how to paint. No greater abyss could have separated the young Stevenson from this eccentric American; and yet, it was love at first sight. Fanny's influence on the novelist has long been recognized but is often reduced to stereotype: either she is written off as an overpowering woman who controlled Stevenson or caricatured as a kind of angel who saved him. For the first time, in this acclaimed biography readers are given a clear, accurate portrait of the woman behind the genius who led a fascinating existence both before and after her marriage to Stevenson. ("She was the only woman worth dying for" is how Fanny's last lover described her in 1914; she was seventy-four at the time, he was twenty-eight.) Alexandra Lapierre spent five years tracing Fanny's life, from her early tumultuous years in America to her days after Stevenson's death. The author's relentless and thorough research drove her to discover Fanny's wardrobe and jewels, to climb the mount where she is buried alongside Stevenson, to study her paintings in Scotland, and to unearth her love letters. This captivating story illuminates the life of a woman whose headstrong ambition and boundless courage set her apart from her generation. She was, as Stevenson wrote of her, "heart whole, soul free," and as this extraordinary biography reveals, the essence of a modern woman ahead of her time5204ocn060965152book20050.15Stephenson, PamelaTreasure islands : sailing the South Seas in the wake of Fanny and Robert Louis Stevenson"This is the story of two resourceful women. The one, Pamela Stephenson--biographer, mother, wife of Billy Connolly, psychologist and ex-comedienne--the other Fanny Stevenson--'the Wild Woman of the West', as her husband Robert Louis called her. Both married to maverick Scottish men, both in search of adventure and a kind of epiphany, both drawn for a myriad of reasons to the coral islands, lagoons, natives and customs of the South Seas"--P.

Under the Wide and Starry Sky chronicles the unconventional love affair of Scottish literary giant Robert Louis Stevenson, author of classics including Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and American divorcee Fanny Van de Grift Osbourne. They meet in rural France in 1875, when Fanny, having run away from her philandering husband back in California, takes refuge there with her children. Stevenson too is escaping from his life, running from family pressure to become a lawyer. And so begins a turbulent love affair that will last two decades and span the world."--46411ocn000398036book19200.56Sanchez, Nellie Van de GriftThe life of Mrs. Robert Louis StevensonHistoryBiography+-+22670303364132ocn000652407book19500.37Hinkley, Laura LThe Stevensons: Louis and FannyBiography38010ocn048487252book20010.19Forster, MargaretGood wives? : Mary, Fanny, Jennie & me, 1845-2001HistoryBiographyPersonal experiences of Margaret Forster and of her mother and grandmother, the stories of three wives who have fascinated her+-+02283744553242513ocn008553387book19820.28Nickerson, RoyRobert Louis Stevenson in California : a remarkable courtshipBiography1617ocn000054898book19680.47Mackay, Margaret MackprangThe violent friend: the story of Mrs Robert Louis Stevenson, 1840-1914HistoryBiography1432ocn034092012book19950.31Lapierre, AlexandraFanny Stevenson : muse, adventuress and romantic enigmaBiography773ocn004060060book19660.76Strouse, Norman HThe Silverado episodeBiography685ocn047270194book20010.63Forster, MargaretGood wives : Mary, Fanny, Jennie and me, 1848-2001Biography633ocn028664652book19930.39Lapierre, AlexandraFanny Stevenson : entre passion et libertéHistoryBiographyFictionUne véritable réhabilitation.
