Reviews

A pleasant and unusual surprise...a daring adventure in biographical refurbishment[: ]
Wonderful nostalgia, rash and brash
And far from the usual fan-mag trash."

--Rex Reed, eminent American film critic


I find it hard to overestimate the cunning of McAleer's decision to give Flynn a Byronic costume, not only in the charisma Flynn shared with his Lordship, but in Byron's own verse panache. McAleer's wit and verbal deftness are the vessel on which his glorious project is launched, and they swell the sails of his splendid, hilarious and touching book. It's a heartfelt tribute not only to Flynn but to Byron himself and all the fearless ones who have seized the stage of life and demanded the spotlight.

--Carey Harrison, novelist, from the Foreword


The correlation between Flynn and Byron is certainly convincing. What a story...a wonderfully entertaining work.

--Fiona MacCarthy, author of Byron: Life and Legend
