Books to Look For (November): History, Comics/Graphic Novels, & Travel

Servants: A Downstairs History of Britain from the Nineteenth Century to Modern Times by Lucy Lethbridge (W. W. Norton & Co., 400 pages, November 18)

The vividly told lives of British servants and the upper crust they served. And with recent novels like Longbourne reimagining Pride and Prejudice from the servants' perspectives, this looks like a good read.
