Mollie and Molly – Gideon Haigh and Katherine Kovacic in conversation
Boroondara Library Service
Mollie Dean, a promising writer and member of Melbourne’s ‘Bohemian’ set, was brutally murdered in November 1930. Nobody stood trial for her death.
Gideon Haigh investigated Mollie’s life and death in A scandal in Bohemia. His story is of a tenacious, charismatic, independent woman and looks at echoes of her life found in Australian literature and arts.
Katherine Kovacic’s fictional account The portrait of Molly Dean investigates Molly through the lens of an art dealer who becomes fascinated with her story.
