Description

Author and journalist Julia Baird discusses her biography of Queen Victoria. Says Esquire magazine, “In Baird’s deft portrayal, Victoria lives, breathes, and struts before us in all her complexity. . . . on a geopolitical level, Baird’s sweeping historical portrait also illuminates just how interconnected the European royal families were during this time. . . . Historical astuteness aside, the pages gallop along enhanced by titillating morsels of info.”
