Editorial Reviews


Eleanor Nicholson has written an old-fashioned epistolary novel of religious awakening and vocation. Set in the heady intellectual and hedonistic milieu of Edwardian England, it mixes elements of Waugh, Wilde, Bernanos, and even a touch of Francis Thompson to create an intimate account of one skeptic s decisive encounter with the Hound of Heaven. In this short book Nicholson recaptures the energy of a great Catholic literary tradition. --Dana Gioia, poet and former Chairman of the National Endowment of the Arts

Magdalen Montague exhales the same exuberant and exotic air as Baudelaire, Huysmans and Wilde; a delicious vignette that illumines the path from debaucherie to the Divine. --Joseph Pearce, author of The Unmasking of Oscar Wilde

About the Author

Eleanor Bourg Nicholson has, by God s grace, found scope for her English degree through work as a freelance writer and editor. Her editing credits include assistant executive editor for Dappled Things, assistant editor for the Saint Austin Review, annotator for a wide range of Ignatius Critical Editions of classic texts, and editor of the ICE Mansfield Park (under her maiden name, Donlon) and the ICE Dracula. Her writing has been published in the Saint Austin Review, Dappled Things, Touchstone, the National Catholic Register, and on the First Things and The Catholic Thing blogs. She and her husband live in Charlottesville, Virginia. Mrs. Nicholson began The Letters of Magdalen Montague on a whim: part literary exercise and part spiritual therapy in the midst of graduate school.
