Andrew Roberts, bestselling author of Eminent Churchillians, has given this advance praise in a letter to the author:
‘A super book which will become a bestseller and will make your name as a serious biographer and author’Reseña del editor:
Sex, intrigue and adultery in the world of high politics and huge wealth in late eighteenth-century England.
Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire was one of the most flamboyant and influential women of the eighteenth century. The great-great-great-great aunt of Diana, Princess of Wales, she was variously a compulsive gambler, a political savante and operator of the highest order, a drug addict, an adulteress and the darling of the common people.
This authoritative, utterly absorbing book presents a mesmerizing picture of a fascinating world of political and sexual intrigues, grand houses, huge parties, glamour and great wealth – always on the edge of being squandered by the excesses and scandals of individuals.
