    Salt Publishing Limited 2011; US$ 8.74

    Jane Holland’s second collection, Boudicca & Co. , is a provocative and vibrant exploration of women and their roles in society.

  • Peculiar Peopleby Augustus Hare

    Chicago Review Press 2006; US$ 14.99

    These days hardly anyone remembers Augustus John Curthbert Hare (1834-1903). But in his prime, the late Victorian age, his name was on the lips of anyone who mattered.
