Product description

Review

Fascinating, beautifully written and meticulously researched (Literary Review)

An absorbing investigation, serious, radical and feminist in its politics, entertaining in its delivery (The Independent)

Offers us an invaluable glimpse into the hidden history of domestic service in an absorbing narrative, beautifully written with the sensibility of a poet (The Times)

A compelling portrait of how rich and poor women of this time were locked into a strange and pernicious symbiosis, and a vital warning against social inequality (Telegraph)

From the Inside Flap

'Have I ever felt such wild misery as when talking to servants?
Partly caused by rage at our general ineptitude - we the governors - having
laden ourselves with such a burden, at having let grow on our shoulders
such a cancer, such a growth, such a disease as the poor are.'
--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
