Review of Georgette Heyer

 
GEORGETTE HEYER may be purchased here.

GEORGETTE HEYER
Jennifer Kloester

GEORGETTE HEYER is a biography of the famous and prolific author, who just happens to be one of my all-time favorites.  Ms. Kloester was given access to Heyer's personal documents and conducted interviews with her son, Richard George Rougier.  This book covers the entirety of Heyer's life and gives an insight into her character.  From this I got the impression, that Heyer was very "stiff upper lip" British and vented and showed her emotions to only a few people.

I truly enjoyed learning more about the author, who made the Regency so popular, and whose novels provide so much enjoyment.  There are, also, some great photographs of the author, her family, and friends, which help to put a face to all the people in the book.  This book is highly recommended to all of Georgette Heyer's fans.

NOTE:  I was given this book in return for an unbiased review.
