This 1896 romance was termed "an exquisite London idyll" by Willa Cather. Originally the novel was published under the pseudonym of George Forth, perhaps because it eschewed the realism of Frederic's simultaneously published The Damnation of Theron Ware. Set in London, the characters of March Hares are in no way tied to reality; besides their need for food, their demeanor and actions come across as insane and disembodied

The heroism in them is real and the characters are alive. And surely one need not go outside of probability to find romance
