By Edna O'Brien
“How lengthy it’s taken for those mad, undesirable and unsafe writers to get together!”—Alan Cheuse, San Francisco Chronicle
Acclaimed biographer of James Joyce, Edna O’Brien has written a “jaunty” (The New Yorker) biography that matches her fiery and charismatic topic. She follows Byron from the dissipations of Regency London to the wilds of Albania and the Socratic pleasures of Greece and Turkey, culminating in his meteoric upward push to reputation on the age of twenty-four. With “a novelist’s figuring out of pace and characterization” (Miami Herald), O’Brien captures the spirit of the guy and creates an indelible portrait that explodes the Romantic fable. Byron, as brilliantly rendered by way of O’Brien, is the poet as insurgent, creative and lawless, and defiantly immortal.
