Georgette Heyer’s Regency novels have never been out of print. And there’s good reason for that. Her historical comedies of manners have charm, wit, romance, perception into human nature and a wealth of fabulous historical detail.
Few novelists have given me such comfort, entertainment and laughs as has the inimitable Georgette! I’m in good company in my admiration for her skill as a writer – William Golding, Stephen Fry, A.S. Byatt, Germaine Greer, Margaret Drabble and the Queen are amongst her fans.
This talk will take you to the places where she sets her novels. Discover the gentlemen’s clubs of Regency London, Almack’s where her heroines dance, the shops they visit, the squares and crescents where they walk and such towns as Bath and Brighton where they go for their health or to ‘take the air’. Learn about the real historical figures she introduces into her fiction, the sporting venues, and the English counties she most favoured as settings for her stories.
