A Pocket Guide to Victorian Writers and Poets, published August 2010, is a lot more than you might expect from a ‘pocket guide’ – giving details of some 250 writers and poets, famous and not so famous, ranging from Dickens, Thackeray and Collins to Wilde and the Decadents; from the Brontes to McGonagall; Ashbee the pornographer to Prest and Rymer (the Penny Dreadful scribes). Lots of fascinating facts about their lives and work, plus, of course, some great pictures.
“It is racy and readable and knowledgeable and interesting. I love its friendly tone which makes me feel I’m talking to … someone who’s telling me all the inside ‘goss’ and ‘info’ on something he knows a lot about … Its combination of wit, scholarship and shrewd judgement is a brilliant one.” – Jane Serraillier.
