On the plus side this book is a compelling narrative about figures we don t hear much of in history namely prominent members of London s underworld during the Georgian Era Rubenhold s prose is good and it s a fast readRubenhold s obvious disdain for her titular subjects is the book s major weakness and oh man it s a big one While she s not without pity for the titular Covent Garden Ladies that pity is mixed with enough disdain to make it feel disturbingly familiar to actual Georgian and Victorian middle to upper class writings You might hope some things have changed in the last centuries but apparently not for Rubenhold While she acknowledges many of these women had little choice in their given profession she also describes their work as sacrificing their integrity a frankly baffling and archaic moral read on the whole situation She also wants you to know they were gross REALLY gross We get references to whores harlots foul mouthed tipple loving prostitutes writhing posture girls posture girls being something of the 18th century euivalent to a modern day stripper and brothels that infested London She also puts scare uotes around ladies just to be sure we get it It s jarring to read Rubenhold whipping back and forth between pity and disdain but the two seem closely intermingled much as they were for actual 18th century commentatorsThe main focuses of the book are Jack Harris a pimp Samuel Derrick a failed middle class Irish poet and Harris copywriter Charlotte Hayes a courtesan turned madam and Dennis O Kelly Charlotte s common law husband horse breeder and co operator of her brothels All four of her central protagonists commit appalling acts and all four of them seem to escape the stinging disdain she lavishes on any female sex worker who isn t Charlotte Her admonishments to take these people as products of their time would be a little compelling if she hadn t spent so much time criticizing women who did far less O Kelly s attempted rape of a young noblewoman and his subseuent arrest is described as English society putting him in his place Maybe there s a grain of truth in this as upper class Englishmen rarely suffered conseuences for the same act But it s just jarring to read after reading paragraphs slamming poor women for having the nerve to pick up a bottle of gin Hayes is a compelling figure and not an unsympathetic one who both faced horrific abuse and inflicted it on others as a madam But it s hard not to feel like Rubenhold is comparatively easy on her due to her high earnings and relatively demure personality It s not that I d exactly prefer to see her deny any sympathy to Hayes who in my view is worthy of a nuanced look but surely her crimes such as kidnapping twelve year olds are serious than being foul mouthed or tipple lovingThe real nail in the coffin here is the sourcing I ve read a lot of historical biographies that I didn t particularly like or agree with but I was at least able to find and trace sources Rubenhold does provide a bibliography but her chapters are littered with uote marks that don t seem to have any particular attributed source Her notes explain the meaning of specific terms but they don t actually point to where she got her uotes or provide any context for them I have never seen this in a historical biography before and it s extremely shoddy I might say this book was worth it for the information alone but the mess that is her notes pretty much kills that Don t read

    An interesting story sensitively told The Covent Garden Ladies fleshes out what life was like for both men and women in Georgian London through the eyes of three of its players Jack Harris Samuel Derrick and Charlotte Hayes I would like to have seen details re individual women beyond Charlotte Hayes The women mentioned are seen almost exclusively through the male gaze; it would be nice if some of them had a chance to tell their own stories
