I can't wait to read

my friend and world-of-eighteenth-century-literature colleague Sophie Gee's novel about the real events behind Alexander Pope's writing The Rape of the Lock! Anyway, The Scandal of the Season will be published in the US in August....

(Thanks to Sarah Weinman for the link.)


  1. That book sounds fabulous -- thanks for the link!

  2. It just came to the store in the Booksense white box mailing (lots of ARC's all at once.) I'll put it on my summer list.
