The return of F. Tennyson Jesse.

F. Tennyson Jesse
In October, the British Library will reprint F. Tennyson Jesse's A Pin to See the Peepshow (1934) as part of its Women Writers series. The novel is based on the Thompson-Bywaters murder case of 1922–23. Jesse—the great-niece of Alfred, Lord Tennyson and a war correspondent, playwright, screenwriter, and novelist—was known for involvement in the series on notable British trials as well as her works with female detective Solange Fontaine.
