The relevance of the work directly mirrors today's society in which common court cases become news, which in turn become mass entertainment Shortlisted for the Longman-History Today Award 2010

About the Author

Chloe Schama has written for the New Republic, New York Sun and the Guardian. She lives in Washington, D.C. This is her first book.


'Chloe Schama will delight her readers. She writes with confidence and passion, yet with a sensitivity for her subject which is wonderfully appealing. I finished the book with regret, wanting more and impatient for a sequel.' Amanda Foreman 'Bringing together a Victorian novelist's reach and richness with the discerning intelligence of a twenty first century literary biographer, Chloe Schama creates a thrilling narrative that locates the themes of Victorian scandal and adventure within contemporary feminist values of courage and autonomy. Schama's fine acrobatic grace enables her to tread the tightrope between the constraints of history and the Wild Romance of an unfulfilled life. This is a work that turns archival materials into the memorable stuff of life.' Homi K. Bhaba
