More than Romance:
Melbourne Rare Book Week
The witty world of Georgette Heyer
First published at just 19, Georgette Heyer went on to become one of the world’s bestselling authors, beloved for her clever, witty historical novels and golden age detective stories. Her Regency novels set the benchmark for the genre that she created. Notoriously private, she did not believe in the need for personal publicity to sell her books, resulting in signed Heyer novels being exceedingly rare. This talk will shed light on the enigmatic writer, her world, her wit and the struggles she faced in both her personal and public life, as well as on the phenomenal success she achieved during her lifetime and beyond.
