A psychological thriller of passionate attachment and emotional cruelty, involving a love triangle between Lord Byron, his half-sister, and his wife.

The New York Times - Jay Parini

Though a marvelous poet, [Byron] was also a monster, abusive and recklessly selfish. Although Markovits asks us to spend relatively little time in his company, Byron's depredations come through loud and clear: to know him is to dislike him. Luckily, Annabella stands at the center of the narrative—a beautifully drawn character, portrayed with moral clarity as well as complexity.
