In this beautifully observed history of the British home front during the Napoleonic Wars, the author of The Lunar Men, Nature's Engraver, and the Samuel Johnson Prize finalist A Gambling Man follows the first global war not from the battlefield but from the lives of those left behind, as news of developments reached them. Illustrated with the satirical cartoons of Gillray and Rowlandson and the paintings of Turner and Constable, and incorporating the familiar voices of Austen, Wordsworth, Scott, and Byron, Jenny Uglow's account depicts how people carried on through hard times, even as new horizons opened for their futures.
