Join bestselling writer Kate Summerscale and her editor Alexandra Pringle for an intimate discussion about the true story of the scandalous divorce trial that rocked Victorian England at the Intelligence Squared Bloomsbury Book Club on 6th September. As in her award-winning and bestselling The Suspicions of Mr Whicher, her new book Mrs Robinson’s Disgrace recreates the Victorian world, chronicling in exquisite and compelling detail the life of Isabella Robinson.

To win a pair of tickets and two first editions of her new book (worth £25 each!) just send an email to with the subject line ‘Bloomsbury Book Club’, your name and address, plus the name of the other person going with you and their address if different. If you win, The Bloomsbury Institute will send you the books and tickets. The competition closes on Tuesday 28th August at 12pm.

The Intelligence Squared Bloomsbury Book Club is a new series of literary events at Bloomsbury Publishing. This autumn season is with Kate Summerscale, Will Self, Howard Jacobson and Stella Rimington. Each book club costs £25 and includes the book, which you’ll receive in advance.
