Product description


"With passion and flair, "The Scandal of the Season" animates an intriguing period of literary history, fleshed out in fluid, intricate, and seductive writing. Every reader will enjoy the wit and subtlety in the novel's dangerous, delicate balance of eighteenth-century customs and transgressions. What a first impression! Sophie Gee's debut novel signals her unique expertise and a great career ahead."-- Matthew Pearl, author of "The Dante Club" and "The Poe Shadow" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


Sophie Gee has recreated the real-life scandal that inspired Pope's The Rape Of The Lock to clever, sexy effect, spinning a tale that will appeal to fans of Tracy Chevalier * Daily Mail * Convincing, seductive and utterly absorbing, Sophie Gee's debut will transport its readers * Observer * A clever and inviting piece of critical biography masquerading as a light comedy of manners * New York Times * Gee knows her period inside out, and recreates it with a kind of loving joy...shows us a society in action rather than merely describing it * Guardian * Secret ambition, hidden hurts, put-downs lobbed by the socially insecure; all of these appear... For anyone who enjoyed Shakespeare in Love or Dangerous Liaisons, The Scandal of the Season is a treat; rich and satisfying * Economist * --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
