Frederic Myers Mentioned in The Little Stranger
Frederic Myers was a 19th century psychologist and author of Human Personality and Its Survival of Bodily Death. Myers and his work are mentioned at least twice in Sarah Waters' The Little Stranger. For those who are interested, books.google.com has several editions of this work available for download in pdf format, and I have included a link to one here. A quick search of the name Frederic Myers at Google books showed that William James wrote about him, although I did not look yet to see what James had to say.
