The Book

A sumptuous family portrait and an electrifying work of social history, The Fall of the House of Byron follows the fates of the notorious poet and adventurer Lord Byron's ancestors over three generations and through the 18th century. In a drama that begins in rural Nottinghamshire and plays out in the gentlemen's clubs of Georgian London, amid tempests on far-flung seas and in the glamour of pre-revolutionary France, this scandalous story takes in elopement, adultery, murder, kidnapping, revolution, war, and the century's most thrilling story of survival against all the odds.
