Sounds great -- I just read a review of it that's going to appear in Shiny New Books tomorrow, similarly impressed.
Thats an interesting perception, James. There certainly is a lot of it in the picture!

Yes, true, Christine -- I expect they are in first class, though!

I love the look of this and really would like someone to do a review for Shiny! Could it be you?
Good luck, Joan -- youll love it.

I have no idea what any of them are, but the extracts have made me want to read them all!
Not sure if theres a catalogue- must look into it.

I think youd love it Darlene. Glad you like the header. Its yet another Thomas Dewing!

It's great that you found the book. What fun! Glad you've been enjoying your hols.

Not sure if fun is exactly it. But pretty gripping and often quite explicit!

Update -- someone kindly sent me a couple of links -- yes, academics do discuss Dewing! See here http://www.19thc-artworldwide.org/spring03/225-on-women-and-ambivalence-in-the-evolutionary-topos and here http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052702304888404579381220997126310 Thanks Rob!
Susan I spent several months teaching at a small university in PA some years ago and used to visit Washington regularly as I had some friends there. So I have been to the Smithsonian, but would love to go again sometime. A room full of Dewings must be wonderful. Thanks for the kind words about the blog. It means a lot to hear from people who enjoy it.

Yes indeed Helen and Juxtabook, the symbolism seems rather interesting!

Well worth looking out for, Annabel. Glad you are a co-fan!
Yes Mystica -- her characters are wonderful and so memorable! She is a brilliant writer.
Thanks, Lory -- I shall. Watch this space!
Perhaps theres a maid at home who doesnt mind washing!

They are really fun, arent they Darlene. I think the customers will love them.
Yes I guessed the father of Connor too. Everyone seems to think the first book is better. Im glad Im not the only one slightly bothered by his writing as a woman. I suppose thats why he uses initials rather than his actual name. You are right, it is of its time -- immediately afterwards I read another one that also uses technology and internet dating! Must review it soon.

Yes, go for it James!
Joerg, this is obviously Oswald trying to sound grown-up and getting it wrong. I think he must mean 'insidiously'. Hope that helps, and good luck with the project -- I imagine it must have been hard to do!
