Présentation de l'éditeur :

Acclaimed as the greatest comic actress of her generation, Dora Jordan played a quite different role offstage as the mistress of one of the sons of George lll. Dora bore him ten children, and they lived in quiet happiness in Bushy Park on the Thames until the unexpected news arrived of his ascendancy to the throne as William lV - at which point he was forced to abandon her. Claire Tomalin vividly recreates the political, theatrical and royal worlds of the late eighteenth century. The story of how Dora moved between stage and home, of how she battled for career and family, makes for a classic tale of royal perfidy and womanly courage.

Biographie de l'auteur :

Claire Tomalin has been literary editor of the New Statesman and the Sunday Times. She is the author of seven highly acclaimed literay biographies, including Samuel Pepys, which won the Whitbread Book of the Year award, and the international bestseller, Charles Dickens: A Life.
