Episode 285: The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue Author Mackenzi Lee

Is it legal to have this much fun on a podcast? God, we hope so, because author Mackenzi Lee was a blast.

Lee recently talked to Sean Tuohy, Daniel Ford, and Rebecca Weston at the PRX Podcast Garage in Allston, Mass., about her novels The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue and This Monstrous Thing. She also discusses some badass women featured in her book Bygone Badass Broads: 52 Forgotten Women Who Changed the World. (FYI, her next novel, The Lady's Guide to Petticoats And Piracy, comes out in October.)

Get your band names ready (try to top Elephant Pool) and dig into a new episode of the Writer’s Bone podcast!

I wanted to write about history in a way that is accessible to me and in the voice and style that comes most naturally.
