A story of sex and scandal, but also of the fragility of life, the unyielding passion of the human heart, and the oppressive weight of the past. From the first to the last, the ghosts of the Byrons call out to us through Brand's evocative prose. Magnificent.
Revelatory and readable, Brand opens up the story of Byron's inheritance, a legacy that will be the making and unmaking of him. A fascinating, gripping work
