Sedition

by Katharine Grant

Like a darker, Gothic version of Jane Austen's social commentaries on women's marriage prospects, this bawdy excursion into the sexual politics of bourgeois matchmaking in Georgian London subverts our expectations. Echoing the social upheavals of the French Revolution, taboo themes of transgressive sex, seduction, violence, incest and rape provide plenty of material for book clubs to explore.
