Summary

“The Tenant of Wildfell Hall” a novel by English author Anne Brontë. Her second and last novel, it is presented in the form of a series of letters from one Gilbert Markham to his friend and brother-in-law about how he met his  wife. An enigmatic young widow arrives at the uninhabited Elizabethan mansion called Wildfell Hall. After taking up residence there in a hermit-like manner, she becomes the victim of terrible slander. She is befriended by a local man who is sceptical of  the local  and  who gradually comes to learn of her tragic past. Among the most disturbing and shocking of the novels published by the Brontës family, it enjoyed incredible success—despite her sister Charlotte's preventing its re-publication after her death. “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall” constitutes a must-read for lovers of classic English literature and it is not to be missed by those who have read and enjoyed other works by the Brontë sisters. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

    The denizens of a crumbling Dublin hotel are the subject of a meddling photographer in this Booker Prize–shortlisted “masterpiece” (Irish Times). Once a flourishing establishment, O’Neill’s Hotel has fallen on hard times. The same could be said for the people who live there. Among them are Mrs. Sinnott, the elderly, deaf, and mute proprietor; her drunkard son, Eugene; Morrissey, a small-time pimp; and the grim, lone porter O’Shea. But what might sound bleak to some holds irresistible allure for globetrotting photographer Ivy Eckdorf.   Hearing stories of O’Neill’s Hotel from an ocean liner barman, Eckdorf catches the unmistakable whiff of human interest. Surely some tragic story hides within this crumbling corner of Ireland. Now she intends to uncover that story, frame it just so, and turn it into her next coffee table book. Though she has no connection to these hard-luck souls, she has arrived. And no one’s life will be the same—not even hers.   “An astounding richness of pathos, humour and tragedy.” —Francis King   “A small work of art [that] reaches antic heights.” —The New York Times
