Science, Sexuality and Sensation Novels Pleasures of the Senses by Laurie Garrison

This fascinating new book offers a detailed account of the prolific debate about the sensation novel and considers the genre's dialogues with a number of sciences. Well-known and obscure sensation novels are read against this context in order to recover the forgotten history of sensual reading the genre inspired.


'...persuasive and enlightening, revealing a good eye for detail and nuance...' - BSLS'
