Book Review: The Curious Tale of The Lady Caraboo, by Catherine Johnson

A well researched, finely written  re-imagining of an actual historical figure, The Curious Tale of The Lady Caraboo sheds light on how identity is formed and shaped by the stories we tell about ourselves and the stories, like that of the ‘exotic other’,   that are projected upon us.  An essay in how far a lie can stretch, and who does the stretching.   A great yarn with a beguiling central character.
