Secret Memoirs of Lord Byron

(1978)
A novel by

 
 
Shortly after Byron's death in 1824, an act of literary vandalism was committed: the burning of the poet's memoirs.

For over a hundred and fifty years, it was assumed that the memoirs had been lost forever, and that the world would never know what shocking revelations they contained.

But what if a secret copy of the manuscript had survived?

Christopher Nicole now makes a sensational claim: he has discovered in Greece, where Byron died, an ancient manuscript in Byron's handwriting. Could this be the long-lost memoir?

With his laughing eyes, moody pallor, and aloof nature, Byron had women, from all social classes falling at his feet.

As his literary reputation grew, so did his reputation as a rake.

Perhaps the most famous and scandalous man of his time, this book offers a vivid and bawdy recreation of the tumultuous life of Byron the lover, poet and adventurer.
