The Three Perils of Woman

edited by Colin Groves, Antony J. Hasler, Douglas Mack, and James Hogg

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Both comical and horrific,The Three Perils of Woman is essentially a combination of two stories on similar themes. One is set in the Highlands following the Battle of Culloden and the other in Hogg's Edinburgh. Daring in its subject matter, the novel touches on such delicate topics as prostitution and venereal disease.
