Lister was a Regency landowner, an intrepid world traveller ... and an unabashed lover of other women.In this bold new biography, prizewinning author Angela Steidele uses the diaries to create a portrait of Anne Lister as we've never seen her before: a woman in some ways very much of her time and in others far ahead of it. Lister recorded everything from the most intimate details of her numerous liaisons through to her plans to make her fortune by exploiting the coal seams under her family estate in Halifax and her reaction to the Peterloo massacre. She conducted a love life of labyrinthine complexity, while searching for a girlfriend who could provide her with both financial security and true love.'A fascinating book about a remarkable woman.'The Times'Angela Steidele has written a Regency romp which gives a vivid glimpse into a hidden world of female eroticism.'Spectator'Steidele's steely account of the lives behind the first rainbowed plaque is a triumph of truth over fantasy.
