Reviews

"If until now the Georgian home has been like a monochrome engraving, Vickery has made it three dimensional and vibrantly colored." Behind Closed Doors" demonstrates that rigorous academic work can also be nosy, gossipy, and utterly engaging."--Andrea Wulf, "New York Times Book Review"

"Comparison between Vickery and Jane Austen is irresistible. . . This book is almost too pleasurable, in that Vickery's style and delicious nosiness conceal some seriously weighty scholarship." Lisa Hilton, "The Independent"
