When Gaia Champion's souffle fails to rise in 1830s Bath, it sets off a chain of events that overthrows the settled order.

Centred on the personality of local councillor and bachelor extraordinaire Bellerophon 'Belle' Nash, this first volume of The Gay Street Chronicles engages with social issues that were emerging in the early days of Queen Victoria's reign and still require our close attention today.

A recurring cast of whimsical characters brings a gentle humour to the writing and to the strong feminist activism of Bath's first Lady Magistrate.

"A real romp of a book - full of surprises!"
Alexander McCall Smith

"Funny, clever, silly in the right way, and strangely moving in its unexpected ending. I love the alt-Regency Bath that Keeling has built."
Jeanette Winterson

"By turns incisive, outlandish and hilarious! ... there's a brilliance in The Gay Street Chronicles, half-modern, half-Dickensian."
Matthew Parris

"Bravo. A rollicking tale of corruption, intrigue and romance. A racy read!"
Peter Tatchell
