When William Hazlitt moved into 9 Southampton Buildings, Holborn, in August 1820, little did he know 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.
