A deeply evocative story inspired by real events: the love affair between two unforgettable people?Gustave Eiffel, the builder of the Eiffel Tower, and Alice Guy Blaché, a pioneer in the art of cinema. Mademoiselle Alice steps out of the shadows into the reader's mind as an endlessly intriguing and entirely relatable young woman. Told through Alice's eyes, we get to know her, her family, and Monsieur Eiffel. Eiffel is not looking to fall in love?he is a widower who has everything?wit, wealth, fame, and brilliance. He was a friend of Alice's father who died when she was seventeen, and the story she tells of falling in love with him is funny and emotionally intimate. Alice and Eiffel forge an enduring romantic and intellectual bond. But while she wants to marry him, he refuses because he is so much older than she is. Out of her desire to have a family, she marries a handsome Englishman and travels to the United States, where she works with D. W. Griffith and then opens her own film studio. Some of her emotional experiences find expression in the scenarios she writes for film. Her relationship with Monsieur Eiffel continues on in her mind and leads to some surprising developments. Mademoiselle Alice tells us much about women's lives during the silent film era in France and the United States. Combining a biographer's knowledge of her subject with the novelist's gift for narrative, Janelle Dietrick has crafted a novel that will capture the interest of every reader.
