About the Author:

James Morton is a former barrister and author of several books and autobiographies including The Last Detective. He lives in London.

Review:

[Lola Montez] now has another fitting monument in this full, judicious and endlessly entertaining biography. The Sunday Times Unearthing the truth about a notorious Spanish dancer who fibbed, fought and fornicated her way around the world, must present a considerable challenge to a biographer. Happily, it is one to which James Morton rises with verve and style. Virginia Rounding, The Sunday Times In charting her ceaseless journey, Morton does justice to the unsettled nature of her life, and paints a vivid picture of the world of the ambitious good-time girl. Matthew Dennison, Times Literary Supplement. Lola's story is truly gobsmacking Glasgow Herald
