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.

An engaging and comprehensive biography of one of my favorite authors. Things I learned: Heyer's work really is as awesome as I thought; she was a driven writer with a pasion for historical research - what I wouldn't give to see her card file of period slang!; she was a very private person. I liked this author's assessment of how Heyer's plotting and characters matured as she did, and examples of how barristers featured more prominently in her work after her husband became one, and how one of her books was "published simultaneously with her son."
