Anyone know of any good books, plays, or other material about Suzanne Le Peletier de Saint-Fargeau
, a.k.a. "Mademoiselle Nation"? She was an eleven-year-old girl adopted by the French revolutionaries after her father's murder by a royalist. Her portrait by Jacques-Louis David
is currently on display at the Getty in Los Angeles, and as the book blog Romancing the Tome says
the story of her life would make for excellent reading. Surely she's found her way into print by now?

I've just reduced my book queue to a puny six or seven, I'm looking to pile a little something on, and a bookstore just opened within walking distance. I'm in the mood for a good history of the French Revolution. Any recommendations?
