Subject(s): Genre/Form: Summary: "Dickinson meets Booksmart with a dash of Little Women in Infamous, a Regency-era queer romantic comedy with a deliciously feminist twist, from Lex Croucher, the author of Reputation. Twenty-two-year-old aspiring writer Edith ("Eddie") Miller and her best friend Rose have always done everything together-from climbing trees and sneaking bottles of wine, to extensive kissing practice. But Rose has started talking about marriage, and Eddie is horrified. Why can't they continue as they always have? Then Eddie meets charming, renowned poet Nash Nicholson--a rival of Lord Byron, if he does say so himself--and he welcomes her into his world of eccentric artists and boundary-breaking visionaries. When Eddie receives an invitation to Nash's crumbling Gothic estate in the countryside, promising inspiration (and time to finish her novel, a long-held dream), she eagerly agrees. But the pure hedonism and debauchery that ensues isn't exactly what she had in mind, and Eddie soon finds herself torn between her complicated feelings for Rose and her equally complicated dynamic with Nash, whose increasingly bad behavior doesn't match up to her vision for her literary hero. Will Eddie be forced to choose between her friendship with Rose and her literary dreams--or will she be able to write her own happily ever after?"-- Provided by publisher.
