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.
