Features

32 The Crying Boy (cover story)
Could a kitsch print bring fiery disaster to its owners? David Clarke goes back to the Eighties to investigate the tabloid newspaper origins of a modern myth and the birth of a story that certainly "had legs".

40 The Vegetable Lamb of Tartary
Jan Bondeson traces the curious story of a bizarre plant-animal whose tender flesh was considered a great delicacy and whose skin was used to make coats of fabulous rarity and value.

46 The Infidel in Petticoats
In an exclusive extract from his new book, Antonio Melechi explains how one of Victorian Britain's most prominent female writers made a controversial journey from illness and opium dependency via the 'Holy Science' of Mesmerism to a new scientific secularism.
