* The Vampyre Family is a thrilling tale about the pursuit of love, sex and fame. Andrew McConnell Stott provides a dual portrait of the Romantic spirit during its most intense period of creativity, and uncovers the emotional devastation that was left in its wake -- AMANDA FOREMAN, the bestselling author of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire Praise for The Pantomime Life of Joseph Grimaldi: 'Brilliant ... As a portrait of London life in all its mutinous and anarchic variety this book would be hard to beat Spectator * A fast-paced rumbustious biography ... Stott evokes both the dizzying excitement and the harshness of theatrical life -- Jenny Uglow Observer * [A] great big Christmas pudding of a book, almost over-stuffed with rich and colourful life Guardian 'Book of the Week' * Stott's dynamic dramatization grabs our attention, and we, too, as outsiders [like Claire and Polidori], are cannily lured into the poetic celebrity's inner circle Times Literary Supplement
