Reading Georgette Heyer's Regency World by Jennifer Kloester makes me want to go back and read every Georgette Heyer book that I've already read and pay closer attention, maybe make an effort to pick out the real people. And though I have figured out much of the slang and many of the societal references after reading a number of Heyer's novels, I plan to order a copy of this to have on hand. This is an enjoyable light history and a fun reference work for history buffs and Heyer fans alike.
Now to go download an as-yet-unread Heyer onto my Kindle to read tonight.
