The vast memory of love
Offering the literary delight of the season, Bosse has captured the pulse and character of London in the 1770s in an exuberant tale that intertwines the lives of Henry Fielding, the Earl of Sandwich, and John Wilkes, among others, with the fate of a livery boy who has come to the city to make his fortune. Adventure, misadventure, and the affair of the boy and a kept woman combine to endlessly surpise and entertain. Illustrated.
