A HUGE WONDERS & MARVELS CONGRATULATIONS to our friend and colleague, Lucy Inglis, for the call-out to her Georgian London: Into the Streets as a History Today’s Best Books of 2013. “Reading her brisk, astringent and highly amusing tour around various quarters of Hanoverian London on Boxing Day is the ideal antidote to the excesses of Christmas and will keep you snugly entertained in your armchair for hours.”
Lucy is in great company, including Joel Harrington’s “sparkling” The Faithful Executioner: Life and Death, Honor and Shame in the Turbulent 16th Century. Joel is a longtime Vanderbilt colleague, who is co-directing the Robert Penn Warren Fellows Program on “Public Scholarship” with me next year.
I’m checking in with Lucy to see if she has more updates to share about the fantastic things that have been happening around her book. From what I can tell, she’s been BUSY. Check out her Twitter updates here. In the meantime, you’ll find all of her W&M posts here.
