Beau Brummel

Front Cover
Oberon, 2001 - Drama - 88 pages
It is the winter of 1819. The most famous wit and dandy of them all, the man who taught a generation of Englishmen how to dress, friend and confidant to lords, ladies and royalty, is preparing to receive the Prince of Wales.
In Bath the season is just about to start. Sedan chairs are carrying ladies to the pump room. There are carriages outside every house and lights in every window.
But this is not Bath or Brighton or any of the other fashionable watering holes where for years Beau Brummell held court to regency swells. The most stylish man of his day may still be more interested in cuffs, collars and creases than matters of life and death, but now he lives in a madhouse in Calais with his valet, determined as ever to relive past glories.
