The classic biography, finally back in print!
As an internationally bestselling phenomenon and queen of the Regency Romance, Georgette Heyer is one of the most beloved historical novelists of our time. She's written more than fifty novels – romances, detective stories and contemporary works of fiction – yet her private life was practically inaccessible to any but her closest friends and relatives.
With this classic biography we catch a glimpse into Georgette Heyer's world and that of her most memorable characters. With access to private papers and archives, Jane Aiken Hodge reveals a formidable, energetic woman, with an impeccable sense of style and, beyond everything, a love for all things Regency.
Lavishly illustrated from Georgette Heyer's own research files, her family archives and other Regency sources, complete with extracts from her correspondence and references to her work, THE PRIVATE WORLD is a delight and a must-read for every Georgette Heyer fan.
