This week we look at Heyer’s treatment of her heroes and heroines and unpick why she was largely ignored by the literati. Our guests are two people who could definitely fall into that category: Alison Bonomi of the LBA literary agency and poet and novelist Jane Holland.
With Charlotte Lamb as her mum, Jane knows all about the impact of a literary legacy. Join Sara-Mae as she talks to them about Heyer’s lasting impact on the Regency romance genre, as well as what it’s like to live in the shadow of a famous author...
We reference Laurel Ann Nattress' article for Austenprose: 'Heyer’s Heroes: Immutable Romance Archetypes'
We also discuss a host of Heyer's books, including: Venetia, Faro's Daughter, The Tollgate, The Unknown Ajax, The Quiet Gentleman, The Convenient Marriage and more.
