In Bed with Sherlock Holmes provides a witty and well-researched discussion of the sexual elements in the Sherlock holmes stories, and in Conan Doyle's own life. An expert commentator on all things Victorian, Doyle also reflects that period's attitudes toward sex and erotic love. This commentary will make the Sherlock Holmes stories even more interesting and intriguing since Redmond uses published and unpublished articles, books and letters, as well as quotes from speeches given at meetings, to enliven the text and give a broad out-look to this unusual assessment of Doyle's best known stories. Each chapter opens with one of the original Sidney Paget illustrations. Bibliography. Index.
