Jules Verne’s The Kip Brothers, published in English by Wesleyan University Press in 2007, was mentioned in a May 11 Huffington Post article titled “Jules Verne’s Kip Brothers Translated into English after 100 Years.”

The Wesleyan University Press book features original black and white illustrations.

The article says: “The book, a crime drama, celebrates the fraternal bonds of brotherhood, written shortly after the death of Verne’s brother and best friend, a French sailor. The bond between the two heroes is so close it raised the question in this writer’s mind whether gay relationships could have been written about openly in Victorian France?”
