- DescriptionWhen William Hazlitt moved into 9 Southampton Buildings, Holborn, in August 1820, little did he kw that his life would soon be turned upside-down. On meeting 19-year-old Sarah Walker, his new landlady's daughter, as she served him breakfast on his first morning, he conceived a deep infatuation. The intensity of this obsession would eventually lead him to divorce his wife and write the most controversial book of his career, Liber Amoris . Passion and intrigue, love and deception come together in this intoxicating account of a wild and romantic chapter in the life of a genius.
