MEDIA REVIEWS
"Convincing, seductive and utterly absorbing, Sophie Gee's debut will transport its readers" * Observer *
"Secret ambition, hidden hurts, put-downs lobbed by the socially insecure; all of these appear... For anyone who enjoyed Shakespeare in Love or Dangerous Liaisons, The Scandal of the Season is a treat; rich and satisfying" * Economist *
"Gee knows her period inside out, and recreates it with a kind of loving joy...shows us a society in action rather than merely describing it" * Guardian *
"Sophie Gee has recreated the real-life scandal that inspired Pope's The Rape Of The Lock to clever, sexy effect, spinning a tale that will appeal to fans of Tracy Chevalier" * Daily Mail *
"A clever and inviting piece of critical biography masquerading as a light comedy of manners" * New York Times *
