When a souffle fails to rise, friends try to find out why and uncover a web of corruption that spreads throughout Bath's legal system. Set in the early 1830s, this comic gay historical novel exposes the bigotry of the times but also introduces a new literary and moral hero-Belle Nash, city councillor and bachelor. About time!

MEDIA REVIEWS

Alexander McCall Smith -- "A real romp of a book - full of surprises!" / Jeanette Winterson -- "Funny, clever, silly in the right way, and strangely moving in its unexpected ending. I love the alt-Regency Bath that Keeling has built." / Matthew Parris -- "By turns incisive, outlandish and hilarious! ... there's a brilliance in The Gay Street Chronicles, half-modern, half-Dickensian." / Peter Tatchell -- "Bravo. A rollicking tale of corruption, intrigue and romance. A racy read!"
