This gothic, epistolary novel has lain in obscurity since its first publication in 1790, with only three known copies in existence today. Written primarily by Theobald Wolfe Tone, it parodies the popular sentimental fiction of the time. It is a fascinating roman-a-clef based on living originals within the enclosed world of several famous families of the Anglo-Irish ascendancy, and describes a torrid love affair whose secrets are exposed by an injured lover through whom we encounter William Martin of Clairville (with whose wife, Lady Caroline Vesey, Tone had an affair), a xenophobic Lord Charlemont, a foppish Sir Thomas Goold, and the hot-breathed William ""Index"" Ball, all satirized in a glittering social round of balls, dandies, rapturous swains, blushing belles, and passionate female friendships.
