In 1757, a down-and-out Irish poet and a celebrated London courtesan became bound together by the publication of a little book: Harris’s List of Covent Garden Ladies. Hallie Rubenhold tells the story of this salacious publication which detailed the names and "specialities" of the capital’s prostitutes, and became one of the eighteenth century’s most successful and scandalous literary works.
