      The article presents an interview with author E.S. Thomson. She talks in detail about her forthcoming book "The Blood," in which the character is based on James Miranda Barry, a woman who disguised herself as a man on her journey from Ireland to Edinburgh with the knowledge and complicity of her family. She discusses reasons for making the lead character to someone who has to hide her gender.
