Gentleman Jack

Sally Wainwright


Following on from the success of the television dramatisation of Anne Lister’s life this companion book explores her remarkable diaries decoded from her original cypher.
Often called the first modern lesbian, Anne Lister was a landowner, industrialist and traveller.
Through exploration of the diary’s contents we are exposed to the hidden world of a fearless early nineteenth century woman, her unorthodox life, her love affairs and heartbreaks. Everyday and often intimate details from a voice well ahead of its time make for a fascinating read.
