Georgette Heyer

Product Details



"A superb portrayal of one of my all-time favorite writers. As engaging as a novel to read and containing a wealth of fascinating new material, I found the Heyer biography utterly engrossing." - Anne Gracie, award-winning author of Bride By Mistake "Kloester has opened the door on one of the most private literary icons of the past century, one whose works made and continue to make a lasting impression on readers worldwide. Meticulously researched and supported, Kloester's study is both sympathetic and exact, and paints a finely detailed portrait of the woman behind the books. An engaging, intriguing, absorbing read-history is rarely this entertaining!" - #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens "A vivid and highly readable portrait of a woman whose wit and keen social insight reshaped twentieth century fiction. As a writer whose work has been powerfully influenced by Heyer, I loved reading about her, her professionalism, and her own lasting real life romance. This biography should be required reading for all lovers of Regency novels." - Mary Jo Putney, New York Times bestselling author of No Longer A Gentleman "meticulously reserached..." - Kirkus "The result is an absorbing and enlightening biography, a must-read for Heyer fans and all who cherish Regency romances." - Booklist "An admirably unmelodramatic tour through a life and work." - The Wall Street Journal "With rare access to Heyer's private papers as well as the newly identified letters, Kloester perceptively analyzes Heyer's novels... This well-written, thoroughly researched biography is more detailed than Jane AIken Hodge's The Private World of "Georgette Heyer." Heyer enthusiasts and readers interested in popular romantic historical fiction or the Regency period of English literature will enjoy this." - Library Journal "Meticulously researched" - Kirkus "Heyer's devotees will be charmed by this engaging tour of the author's world. Kloester wisely allows all facets of Heyer's personality to emerge, depicting a feisty, humorous, accomplished woman who is more interesting than her own fictional characters." - The Washington Post "If you are a fan of the Regency period, and/or of "Georgette Heyer," you will find this biography interesting and informative. Perhaps, like myself, you will be reading or re-reading Georgette's novels upon finishing Kloester's work." - A Garden Carred in the Pocket "A well-written look at one of the 20th century's most beloved authors." - Scandalous Women
