Science, Sexuality and Sensation Novels Pleasures of the Senses

Synopsis

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.

Reviews

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

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
