About this Item

Jane Aiken Hodge's portrait of Georgette Heyer, the assumed name of a woman wrote extremely popular books that were set in Regency England and in her private life was the wife of a QC. She managed, until her death, to keep her real identity a secret and through her writing made for herself a civilised oasis in a world she disliked. The book is very clean and tight, appears unread; the DJ is also clean with no tears or price clips, but micro-bumps in the conrers. The previous owner's name, curiously, appears in tiny letters between the ISN number and the copyright information. Bookseller Inventory # 000205

About this title

Synopsis:

"The Georgette Heyer bible...This is a must-have book for any Georgette Heyer lover."
-Historically Obsessed

An internationally bestselling phenomenon and queen of the Regency romance, Georgette Heyer is one of the most beloved historical novelists of our time. She wrote more than fifty novels, yet her private life was inaccessible to any but her nearest friends and relatives.

Lavishly illustrated and with access to private papers, correspondence and family archives, this classic biography opens a window into Georgette Heyer's world and that of her most memorable characters, revealing a formidable, energetic woman with an impeccable sense of style and, beyond everything, a love for all things Regency.

"One of the most beautiful books I know. Time and time again, on reading this book, I found myself breaking off to lift another dog-eared Heyer from the shelf and lose myself in the increased pleasure of a re-reading."
-Washington Post Book World
