Electricity: A Novel by Victoria Glendinning

Electricity is a fast-paced novel, both funny and moving, about connections, contacts and shocks--electrical, emotional, sexual, intellectual. It is the story of a spirited young womans adventures in the 1880s, recounted by herself with wit, candour and an intimacy of closely ovserved domestic and technical detail. Charlotte escapes from her narrow, high-tension home in a London suburb into marriage with a young electrician.?nbsp;?nbsp;In the country mansion which her husband is wiring for electric light--at the time a mysterious, almost magical process--she forms a dangerous liaison with the master of the house. Electricity is also about choices--science versus religion, spiritualism or rationalism, gas or electricity.?nbsp;?nbsp;Each person Charlotte encounters has his or her own language of power and through it all speaks the unstable, unreliable language of love.
