Queen of the Courtesans: Fanny Murray
Queen of the Courtesans: Fanny Murray
by Barbara White
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr White 's love of her subject is rewardingly evident as she persuasively ..., 8 July 2014
Meticulously researched and engagingly written, this highly readable book offers the first major study of one the most fascinating characters of the Georgian era. Dr White 's love of her subject is rewardingly evident as she persuasively depicts Fanny Murray as a canny survivor in an age when low born women had little to draw on but their wit and their looks. With her fame and trendsetting powers she was the forerunner of the modern celebrity. Fanny's tumultuous life is rich in incident and adventure and in these pages we follow her progress from glamorous courtesan to the rich and privileged to respectable and contented wife of a Drury Lane actor.
