Description
The author of the international bestseller Girl With a Pearl Earring turns her attention toward poet and painter William Blake, who resides in a London made anxious by the French Revolution. Maggie Butterfield, a streetwise teen, goes looking for excitement or at least a friend. She meets Jem Calloway, and their chance encounter with Blake and subsequent adventure inspires the poet to write Songs of Innocence and of Experience. Tracy Chevalier's novel brings Georgian London to life, from Westminster Abbey and Cut-Throat Lane to its circuses, mustard factories, and pubs.

"[Chevalier's] pen-sketches of the squalor, smells and sounds of low-life London flesh out the history into immediacy. The bareback riders and tightrope-walkers of the flamboyant, real-life, early circus-owner Philip Astley’s spectacular show contribute further flashes of authentic colour and dash."—Financial Times
