Description

Why did the great philosophical novelist George Eliot feel so self-conscious that her right hand was larger than her left? How did a working-class child called Fanny Adams disintegrate into pieces in 1867, before being reassembled into a popular joke, one we still reference today, but would stop, appalled, if we knew its origins? Victorians Undone is an eye-opening, deeply intelligent, ground-breaking account that brings the Victorians back to life and helps us understand how they lived their lives.

Professional reviews

"A ground-breaking account of what it was like to live in a Victorian body, from one of our very best historians, Kathryn Hughes. “Hughes is an elegant writer, and a capable digger; no stone, however small or inaccessible, is left unturned.” OBSERVER, on The Short Life and Long Times of Mrs Beeton. “Hughes has an acute ear for social nuance.” THE TIMES, on George Eliot: The Last Victorian."
