Violet Paget (1856-1935), also known under the pseudonym Vernon Lee, was a French-born British writer famous for her supernatural fiction and contributions to the field of aesthetics. She also wrote more than a dozen books on a variety of subjects ranging from music to travel, and today she is best remembered for her original ideas and amusing use of irony. First published in 1903, "Penelope Brandling" is a fantastic example of classic Victorian literature not to be missed by those who have read and enjoyed other novels by Paget. Other notable works by this author include: "The Prince of the Hundred Soups: A Puppet Show in Narrative" (1883), "The Countess of Albany" (1884), and "Miss Brown" (1884). Read & Co. Classics is proudly republishing this classic novel now in a new edition complete with an introductory biography by Daniel Lleufer Thomas.
