The Emperor's Last Stand is a book about St Helena, an island with a sad, strange history, and about the tangle of stories and myths, absurdities and simple facts that have accumulated around Napoleon and his sojourn here. It follows him through the eyes of those who lived with him, who guarded him, who managed only to catch a brief glimpse of him, alive or dead.
It is also a personal account: a description of Julia Blackburn's own journey to St Helena and at the same time a journey through the private memories and associations evoked by the telling of this poignant and curious story.
Rezension: "A melancholy and exquisitely bizarre essay on fame, morality and the vanity of human wishes" London Review of Books "Moving and original... Julia Blackburn writes like an angel" -- Mary Wesley "Pure enchantment, stranger than fiction" Cosmopolitan
