"Almost criminal in its housebreaking, burglarizing, second-story genius."?James Kincaid, University of Southern CaliforniaThe Victorian age is much closer to us in time than we might believe. Yet at that time, in the most technologically advanced nation in the world, people buried meat in fresh earth to prevent mold forming and wrung sheets out in boiling water with their bare hands. Such household drudgery was routinely performed by the grandparents of people still living, but the knowledge of it has passed as if it had never been.
L'autore: Judith Flanders is the author of A Circle of Sisters, which was nominated for the Guardian First Book Award. She lives in London.
