Thomas Bailey sighs over a portrait of his adored Ethelinda Tit, but he faces an insurmountable obstacle to his passion: Ethelinda died two hundred years ago! Yet things appear to be looking up for Thomas when he meets young Miss Annabella Tit, Ethelinda's descendant. But a sinister Armenian merchant has other plans, denouncing Thomas to a secret tribunal and kidnapping Annabella to a den of robbers. And that's just the beginning. In a surreal and hilarious series of adventures, Thomas will find himself drowned, hanged, and captured by Napoleon, while Annabella is repeatedly imprisoned, escaping with the aid of a talking frog and perhaps the strangest disguise in all of fiction.

This book has it all, for both fans and critics of the Gothic novel. It satisfies the reader's taste for romance, heroics, villainous machinations and narrow escapes from death - while parodying every possible Gothic convention. The plot is rich in caverns accessed by trap doors and walls that move by secret springs, capricious monarchs, wily assassins, tyrannical parents, cold-hearted henchmen, softhearted robbers and implacable Spanish Inquisitors.

The hero, Thomas, son of a butcher, and the heroine, Annabella, daughter of a greengrocer, indulge in every absurdity. They feel quite certain, for one thing, that they must have aristocratic ancestors. Both indulge in frequent sighing, moaning and fainting fits.

Both are aglow with perfections. Thomas is so brave he ends up gathering and leading his own army. Annabella plays the harp so divinely that her melodies can calm an angry sea or distract a vulture from his evening meal.

The author treats us to some of the most convoluted prose in English literature. When Annabella is locked up by a furious patent, we read, "Her person, fragile form, it was evident, was much curtailed in its locomotive faculty." in other words, she couldn't go anywhere! How fun is this? I enjoyed the circumlocutions of style immensely.

There are sly allusion to Regency culture and politics, and hilarious distortions of history, which are easy to enjoy thanks to the helpful footnotes. The introduction is excellent - informative and well written. It puts the novel in context with other Gothic parodies of the period, like Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey.

I would recommend this book highly to anyone interested in the evolution of the novel - and to readers who just want to have fun.

Love and Horror sums up what are probably the two chief concerns of the Gothic novel. But there is more to it and that is humour! It is fun to read. I have had access to this book on microfiche and later in pdf format and am happy to see it back. The edition is splendid! I highly recommend Valancourt Books. You will not be disappointed! Neither by the quality of the book, nor by the story! Get it while it is still in circulation :)
