Habitual readers of Romantic poets know that Percy Bysshe Shelley mentioned breasts in several admiring contexts, but most readers are unaware that this ardent observer actually fled rooms where cleavage reigned supreme. Nor do most Virginia Woolf enthusiast know that the Bloomsbury novelist once participated in an elaborate hoax of the Royal Navy in which she received a shipboard tour dressed as a male Abyssinian potentate. These and other instances of writers gone wild come to life in this properly rowdy new book by bibliophile Peschel. Editor's recommendation.
