E82: "The Benevolent Society of Ill Mannered Ladies" with Alison Goodman
Today I have Alison Goodman on the show to chat about her regency adventure and mystery novel, “The Benevolent Society of Ill-Mannered Ladies.” We discuss how she flips gothic tropes to tell a new kind of story, how she writes agency into this book about middle aged women in a time with they had so little of it, and how she portrayed diversity in a historical London setting. This book was such a good time, and you can order it through my online bookshop, which helps support both the podcast as well as independent bookstores nationwide. You can also help out the show by following me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, and leaving me a review wherever you get your podcasts. Thanks for joining me today.
