Advance Praise from England
"Elegant in style, at once sensational and substantial in content, this book is a surprise and a delight."
--Lucy Hughes-Hallet, "The Sunday Times (London)
"Brian Thompson's debut is a witty biography of the late nineteenth-century arch-manipulator Georgina Weldon. A vengeful egomaniac on a grand scale, she may not have a familiar name, but she has a story that is vibrant and memorable."
--Duncan Bowis, Waterstone's, Kingston, "The Bookseller
"Brian Thompson tells the tale with a boisterousness that is entirely appropriate to his subject. It is a thoroughly enjoyable read with the backdrop of Victorian England carefully added. He enters little special pleading on Mrs. Weldon's behalf and often simply throws his hands up at her folly."
--Peter Stanford, "The Independent (London)
"If it would take a heart of stone not to laugh at Mrs. Weldon's disastrous career, it is impossible not to admire the splendor of her ambitions and the sheer hubris of a woman who could bring twenty-five cases to court in a single year and represent herself in twenty-two of them."
-- Miranda Seymour, "Times Literary Supplement (London)
