Summary
"My Victorians is a hybrid in both form and content, part memoir/extended lyric essay but also a work of biography and of cultural, literary and art history. It's in the 'innocents abroad' tradition, a travelogue of writer Robert Clark's attempt to work through a sudden and inexplicable five-year long obsession centered on Victorian novelists, artists, buildings, and critics. Sometimes comic, sometimes perplexed, it's a little in the spirit of Geoff Dyer's Out of Sheer Rage on the one hand and Rebecca Mead's My Life in Middlemarch on the other, a historical investigation that turns into a bildungsroman and, finally, something like a psycho-spiritual memoir"-- Provided by publisher.
