The Fascination is a Victorian story about the estranged grandson of a wealthy collector of human curiosities, who becomes fascinated with teenage twin sisters, leading them into a web of dark obsessions… And we love this dazzlingly gothic novel from the bestselling author of The Somnambulist.
“A magical, macabre masterpiece.”
–A.J. West, author of The Spirit Engineer
This is a perfect pick for anyone who enjoyed Laura Shephard-Robinson’s The Square of Sevens or Liz Hyder’s The Illusions. (And if you’d like a nonfiction book on the subject of Victorian circuses and curiosities, then read John Woolf’s The Wonders.)
This podcast is edited and produced by Megan Bay Dorman, and programmed by Matt Casbourne.
