Infamous: A Novel | Lex Croucher
8 posts | 6 read | 10 to read
Dickinson meets Booksmart with a dash of Little Women in this Regency-era romantic comedy with a deliciously feminist twist, from the author of Reputation, Lex Croucher's Infamous. Twenty-two-year-old aspiring writer Edith (Eddie) Miller and her best friend Rose have always done everything togetherfrom climbing trees and sneaking bottles of wine, to extensive kissing practice. But Rose has started talking about marriage, and Eddie is horrified. Why cant they continue as they always have? Then Eddie meets charming, renowned poet Nash Nicholsona rival of Lord Byron, if he does say so himselfand 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 isnt 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 doesnt match up to her vision for her literary hero. Will Eddie be forced to choose between her friendship with Rose and her literary dreamsor will she be able to write her own happily ever after?

Good. Interesting take on the romanticism and romantic society in Regency Britain.

Infamous by Lex Croucher is a lesbian version of Bridgerton.

I enjoyed how inclusive this narrative was. I've posted a fuller review on my blog, John C Adams Reviews, for anyone who's interested:

I wrote a review of this delightful new (to North America at least) Regency buildungsroman / romance novel INFAMOUS. It is very smart and very funny, a true rival for Jane Austen's wit and insight and I do not say that lightly!!

My full review is on autostraddle dot com: https://www.autostraddle.com/new-historical-romance-infamous-reads-like-queer-ja...

Infamous is a delightfully diverse and queer rom-com. It‘s got a historical setting with a contemporary sensibility that will really resonate with a lot of readers (myself included). Plus, it‘s funny! Pick it up if you‘re in the mood for a young, fun read with corsets and covert desire. Full review: https://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/infamous-lex-croucher/

CarolynM I‘ve got it on my kindle, but not read yet. On the basis of your review, I‘ll have to bump it up the priority list. 6mo

This weekend I was in Konstanz, Germany, not really far from Zurich. I bought these two books as they were a bit cheaper than in Switzerland!
