More About How to Be a Victorian by Ruth Goodman
 
 
 
Overview
Lauded by critics, How to Be a Victorian is an enchanting manual for the insatiably curious, the the cheapest time-travel machine you ll find (NPR). Readers have fallen in love with Ruth Goodman, an historian who believes in getting her hands dirty. Drawing on her own firsthand adventures living in re-created Victorian conditions, Goodman serves as our bustling guide to nineteenth-century life. Proceeding from daybreak to bedtime, this charming, illustrative work imagines the Victorians as intrepid survivors (New Republic) of the most perennially fascinating era of British history. From lacing into a corset after a round of calisthenics to slipping opium to the little ones, Goodman s account of Victorian life makes you feel as if you could pass as a native (The New Yorker)."
