"What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew: From Fox Hunting to Whist-The Facts of Daily Life in Nineteenth-Century England"
 by Daniel Pool -ISBN-10: 0671882368



A great insight into Victorian daily life, and an entertaining read.

My wife is constantly mentioning that book.
I think she has a copy of it on our shelves.

Right, then!

If you have children, the Vile Victorians book from the Horrible Histories series is quite funny; full of interesting and difficult-to-believe facts which children (and parents) love.

I read "What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew." I quite enjoyed it, though it left me wishing that such a book existed dealing with Russian literature.
