A bestselling novelist since 1921, Georgette Heyer is known across the world for her historical romances set in Regency England.
Millions of readers love the period for its fashion, famous people and events, and its elegant and often outrageous mayfly upper-class.
It was Heyer who created the Regency genre of historical fiction in the 1930s and 40s with books such as "Regency Buck" and "Friday's Child".
Since then, in many minds, Heyer and the Regency have become synonymous.
Not a dry history book, but the ultimate, definitive guide to Heyer's world: her heroines, her villains and dashing heroes, the shops, clubs and towns they frequented, the parties and seasons they celebrated, how they ate, drank, dressed, socialized, voted, shopped and drove.
It is an utterly delightful and fun read for any Heyer fan.
