Kingdom Swann is a delicious fantasy by one of Britain's most exuberantly imaginative novelists, a comic foray into the sub-world of Victorian and Edwardian pornography and the double standards that marked life and art. Rambunctious and bawdy, it imagines the redhot reality behind the coy sepia nudes of ninety years ago. Kingdom Swann, Victorian master of the epic nude painting turns to photography and finds himself recording the erotic fantasies of a generation through the eye of the camera. This is a disgraceful tale of murky morals and unbridled matrons in a world of Suffragettes, flying machines, and the shadow of war. Art has come to life and all hell is breaking loose.
