‘The novel’s dark energies – concerned with histories of gender, property, desire, and institutionalization – carry it forth into our present moment. It remains indispensable reading’ Claire Connolly from her preface to The Real Charlotte

In 1894, the London evening newspaper the St James’s Gazette announced ‘a real acquisition’, a new novel from the publishers Ward and Downey. It was the first collaborative success of many for Somerville and Ross, two Irish women who were second cousins, received as a fresh, original, and funny treatment of Irish life.
