'A magnificent and terribly readable collection'

These are the words of Patricia Duncker, of Manchester University Press who joined our editor on today's Radio 4 Woman's Hour programme to discuss The Darker Sex. Huge thanks to all of them - the book has shot up in the last few hours to No 1 in Amazon's Victorian Ghost Stories category in the last couple of hours!
