Reviews

  • "In her biography of L.E.L., Lucasta Miller’s stellar research blows two centuries of accumulated dust off a phenomenon worth unearthing… This book takes biography to a new level… Miller’s determination to distill meaning from fact brings her work close to the sort of detection found in Joseph Conrad, whose aim is to make is “see”."

    New Statesman
  • "Wonderfully entertaining... spellbinding."

    New York Times Book Review
  • "Compelling as a detective story, Miller’s revelatory life of Landon is a masterpiece of eloquent scholarship."

    Literary Review
  • "A valiant recovery job – the life of a writer, a woman first celebrated, then notorious, in her time and nearly forgotten today... [An] infinitely rich literary biography."

    Katharine Powers, Wall Street Journal
  • "A fascinating portrait of a woman and her times and a heartbreaking song of the fickleness of love and fame."

    Economist
