It’s been too long, as ever, but I like to wait before I have cold, hard (or warm, soft) news to tantalise you all with before rambling on. So, anyway, here we are. My new book Byron’s Women is published by Head of Zeus on September 8th, and I was lucky enough to see the first copies today. It looks, as all their books do, sensational. I don’t think I’m speaking immodestly when I say it’s my best so far – I love the others dearly but this one feels somehow more grown-up and more ‘relevant’. It’s been a labour of love – if at times a rather shocking one – and I can’t wait to discuss it with you.
Anyway, I’m ‘on tour’ – as it were – in September and October discussing both Byron and Restoration in various guises. Here is the current schedule, which I will amend or change as needs be…
15th September - Byron’s Women launch, Daunt Marylebone, London
19th September - Fire! Fire! discussion at Museum of London
22nd September – The Society Club, 3 Cheshire Street, London
Mid-Oct (date tbc) – Waterstones Brighton
21st Oct – Harrogate History Festival – discussing Restoration
24th Oct (tbc) – Blackwells Oxford
Further dates to be announced!
