In Love With George Eliot

Pressestimmen 'In Love with George Eliot is a real pleasure to read, even if you haven't read any of her novels.' -- Lisa Hill * ANZ LitLovers * 'In Love with George Eliot is a feverishly intense and beautifully rendered first novel, especially in its detail and sensitivity, that brings to life the woman and the legend.' -- Marie Matteson * Readings * 'Classy, beautifully written and richly imagined - a novel that opens a door onto the past.' -- Nicci Gerrard, author of The Twilight Hour 'A layered, tender portrait.' -- Dani Garavelli * The Herald * 'Henry James was but one of many beguiled by Marian Evans (aka George Eliot) ... In lucid, unshowy prose, O'Shaughnessy brings them all to life.' -- Rose Shepherd * Saga * 'In Love with George Eliot is a clever, unconventional approach to the great novelist's life; it is easy to imagine that Marian Evans herself would have approved of the playful thoughtfulness with which Kathy O'Shaughnessy brings the private person behind George Eliot's public success alive.' -- Dr Ruth Scurr, author of John Aubrey: My Own Life '[A] sensitive, impeccably researched and deeply pleasurable debut novel ... As the best historical novels do, it absorbs the reader to such an extent that, even if they know the outline of the story, each page is a revelation.' * The Economist * 'A revealing debut novel ... a fascinating read.' -- Mariella Frostrup * BBC Radio 4 Open Book * 'I devoured this, and it made me happy and excited. It reminded me of Toibin's The Master: its representations of the psychology of the characters, their shifting ground, variegated moods, seemed to work in something like the same way, and with the same fineness. It's really beautifully tender, subtle, imaginative, saturated authentically (to my mind anyway) in another time and thought-world.' -- Tessa Hadley, author of Late in the Day Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Kathy O'Shaughnessy has reviewed books for The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Times, Financial Times, Independent, The Observer, TLS, New Statesman, The Spectator, and others. She has worked as Deputy Editor on the Literary Review, Arts & Books Editor of Vogue, Literary Editor of The European, and Deputy Editor of The Telegraph Arts & Books. Her stories have been published in Faber's First Fictions, and she edited and introduced Drago Stambuk's poems, Incompatible Animals.
