A Man of Genius is mesmerizing story of love and obsession in nineteenth-century Venice.
Janet Todd knows Vernice like the back of her hand and she deftly spins a dark, intriguing tale set in the bustling society of Regency England and the declining glamour of Venice. Ann is an author of cheap Gothic novels, and when she meets – and becomes infatuated – by Robert James (regarded by himself and his followers as a poetic genius) they travel from London through a Europe exhausted by the long Napoleonic Wars to a Venice of spies and intrigue, where their relationship becomes tortuous and Robert descends into near madness.
