Review:

"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)
