Author and journalist Alexander Larman discusses the life and loves of Lord Byron, the most notorious of all the Romantic poets, and one whose literary genius was equalled by his passionate affairs.

Alexander Larman has previously written a biography of Lord Rochester, Blazing Star, and a social history of the year 1666, Restoration. His latest book, Byron’s Women, was published by Head of Zeus in September 2016 to critical acclaim.
