Reviews

Fanny Burney's name has enjoyed a resurgence, with the publication of her novels, the performance of some of her plays and the constant quotation of her witty, vivacious diaries and letters. Today the author of "Evelina" and "Cecilia", both of which created new dimensions for the novel, is as well remembered for her memoirs of Johnson, her mastectomy and her lively account of the Battle of Waterloo. This biography of Fanny Burney aims to provide the ultimate portrait of a remarkably clever, forward-looking woman who has intrigued and delighted critics and biographers for more than two centuries.
