Praise for Lucasta Miller's L.E.L.: Textured and lively ... Miller's biography vividly restores a forgotten author and her faded world, that of the 'strange pause' between the Romantics and the Victorians. --Publishers Weekly A riveting life of an English poet and novelist whose precocious career ended in sexual scandal and controversy ... The extent of Miller's research is impressive ... A thorough, engaging, and even loving restoration. --Kirkus (starred review)
