'Judith Flanders is the Mary Poppins of academic toil. "Spit spot", she says, and suddenly you have...amusing information...the delight of this book is the intelligence and freshness of its inferences.' Lynne Truss, Sunday Times 'A, the past is not so much a foreign country as another planet...there is not a single piece of trivia here that I don't feel better for knowing.' Time Out 'An enthralling, entertaining and thought-provoking revelation of the realities of life in the tall, thin, Victorian town house.' Evening Standard 'This book is a splendidly entertaining read, and it also breaks new ground. No one has ever written so interestingly or wittily about housework.' Spectator 'Rich and well ordered, this study casts brilliant light...Curious facts tumble from the pages.' Economist
