New Books: The Inadvertent Researcher by Linda Selman

Website: and email address (1) (1)-1 copy

The Inadvertent Researcher is a beautifully illustrated, fascinating, and unusual detective book. It takes us on a compelling search through the worlds of 19th century society, literature, art, and journalism, as it discovers the hidden story behind a little-known Edith Wharton novella and brings to life the world and people of New York City and beyond in the Gilded Age. It gives its readers a delightful and highly recommended journey from a once famous but now forgotten Puck Magazine editor-in-chief H. C. Bunner to a pioneering suburban literary village to delicate watercolors and frescos. This marvelous tale of a vanished age brings together research and history in a lively and well-written book.
