Review forthcoming, so this is just a placeholder: a *fantastic* book, absorbing and tender-hearted, lucidly written and intriguingly structured, including, among other delights, C18 London, strict Presbyterianism, perfect indexical geekery, secret incestuous liaisons and madhouse reform.

Recently picked this up in my favorite used bookstore, and it looks v. promising.
