AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Set in the late nineteenth century, Tom Gilling’s magical novel tells the tale of Miles McGinty, a young man who decides to learn how to fly. We meet an entrancing cast of characters: among them a kind of swagman, an enigmatic fellow who makes his living doing levitation tricks; Eliza, Miles’s grandly theatrical mother; and Mr Windsor, a light-fingered pedagogue who likes to meddle in the affairs of others. But Miles McGinty is also a love story that takes flight when Miles meets Isabel McCauley, a clever, sceptical girl determined to prove her own destiny.'
