Sophie and the Sybil by Patricia Duncker In 1872 two prosperous German brothers find themselves caught up in an increasingly outrageous intrigue involving a pair of forthright and unconventional women – one of whom happens to be a great novelist. A teasing, playful pastiche of Victorian romance and its values, mixing historical, fictional and imagined characters, Dunker’ sparkling novel delights and provokes in equal measure.
