About this title

Synopsis:

Pullar, Philippa, Frank Harris

From the Publisher:

Frank Harris lived a sensational life surrounded by myth and exaggeration—much of which was perpetrated by himself. As a journalist, Harris was the chronicler of the glittering fin de siècle coterie that included Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas, George Bernard Shaw and Aleister Crowley. But it was for his frenzied sexual escapades that he became infamous—as recorded explicitly in his racy and unreliable autobiography My Life and Loves, which was banned for its pornographic content. Posterity has classed him as a lustful satyr and liar ever since. Yet Philippa Pullar shows that beneath the image of the bawdy Lothario lay a far more complex personality. Harris was a social reformer, traveler, literary critic, and loyal friend, a man with a private, melancholy side, whose constant affairs offered a reassurance never provided by his cold, puritanical father. This compelling biography, first published in Britain 1975, is the definitive life of an extraordinary man.
