Home Sweet Home

Trevor Hall. The Enigma of Daniel Home, Medium or Fraud. Prometheus Books, 1984.
The subtitle proclaims this as "the mystery of Britain's most famous spiritualist unmasked" but the contents do not live up to this claim. What is presented is a series of very padded essays which add little to our knowledge of Home. No fewer that forty of the 148 pages are taken up with a discussion as to the exact date of publication of Viscount Adair's Experiences in Spiritualism with Mr D. D. Home, much of it of interest only to the dedicated bibliophile. - Peter Rogerson.
