I’m a little behind when it comes to posting a bibliography for That Summer— about a year behind, in fact.
With the paperback of That Summer appearing in stores a week from today, now seemed like a good time to remedy the defect.
Of course, a year after first publication and two years after handing the manuscript in, this is, of necessity, only a partial bibliography, drawn from a combination of memory and lots of digging through the piles of books next to my desk. It’s a combination of Victorian life, Preraphaelite painters, and contemporary criticism and fiction.
There are some excellent books about Victorian London that have come out since I wrote That Summer, but, for the sake of consistency, I included only those I actually consulted in the writing of the book.
And, voila! The partial bibliography….
