In this expanded and revised second edition, join award-winning author Krista D. Ball as she takes you on a fascinating journey into the world of the Have-Nots of the Georgian and Victorian eras.

Discover the world of knocker-uppers (it's not what you think), mudlarks, and costermongers. Learn how to scrub floors and polish knives, pick for bones, and catch rats. Dive into Regency party planning, Victorian fast food, and learn the difference between a lady's maid and a scullery maid. Read about the enterprising merchants, who sold everything from flowers to homemade condoms.

With her easy conversational style, Ball will captivate you with the stories of the past. Whether you're an author, a Janeite, or just a fan of history, Hustlers, Harlots, and Heroes gives you a fresh look into a dark past that had plenty of personality
