Product Description


The Vampyre Family is a thrilling tale about the pursuit of love, sex and fame. Andrew McConnell Stott provides a dual portrait of the Romantic spirit during its most intense period of creativity, and uncovers the emotional devastation that was left in its wake (AMANDA FOREMAN, the bestselling author of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire)


'Brilliant . . . As a portrait of London life in all its mutinous and anarchic variety this book would be hard to beat


A fast-paced rumbustious biography . . . Stott evokes both the dizzying excitement and the harshness of theatrical life (Jenny Uglow Observer)

[A] great big Christmas pudding of a book, almost over-stuffed with rich and colourful life (Guardian 'Book of the Week')

Stott's dynamic dramatization grabs our attention, and we, too, as outsiders [like Claire and Polidori], are cannily lured into the poetic celebrity's inner circle (Times Literary Supplement)

Book Description

A glittering new group biography from the award winning author of The Pantomime Life of Joseph Grimaldi
