Edward Carpenter: A Life of Liberty and Love by Sheila Rowbotham – now available in paperback – has received yet another fantastic review.
From the Morning Star:
Sheila Rowbotham’s vast and impressive work is a precious insight into the alternative socialist lifestyles lapping at the
edges of the stuffy mainstream 19th century and the cultural suppressions of World War I…
All the while, he lived with and honoured those men and women who worked with their hands. An inspiring, valuable and hugely enjoyable ramble of a book.
