Marie-Jeanne Riccoboni was one of the most popular novelists of her day. Joan Hinde Stewart examines Lettres de Fanni Butlerd (1957) and the seven subsequent novels, paying particular attention to the technical aspects of her work, to her handling of the letter form, to her ideas on men, women, and love, and to her feminism.
