Funny, dramatic, suffused with humanity,
This review is from: Fanny and Stella: The Young Men Who Shocked Victorian England (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed Fanny & Stella immensely for it's drama, comedy, humanity and shocking revelations about sexual behaviour in mid-Victorian London. Neil McKenna has done a superb job in bringing out the flighty, sympathetic characters of the two leading ladies and their circle of friends. We think of those times as being inhibited. Well, for many, it was non-stop shenanigans which would have made today's Soho look bland. At times I laughed out loud.
