England’s Lost Eden: Adventures in a Victorian Utopia

England’s Lost Eden: Adventures in a Victorian Utopia by Philip Hoare

(Fourth Estate, 2005)

Gathering her followers in the darkness of the mythic forest, a self-proclaimed female Christ becomes the focus of an apocalyptic Victorian bohemia.

‘No one who is interested in the complexity of our society…could fail to be thrilled and quite possibly entranced by this remarkable volume’.
Robert McCrum, The Observer.
