Summary

Set in the bustling society of Regency England and decaying Venice, A Man of Genius portrays a psychological journey from safety into secrecy and obsession.
After a troubled childhood, Ann St Clair achieves independence by earning her living as an author of cheap Gothic novels. Within a group of male writers, she meets and is enthralled by the supposed poetic genius, Robert James. They become uneasy lovers.
Ann and Robert James travel from London through a Europe exhausted by the long Napoleonic wars. They arrive in a Venice of spies and intrigue, where their relationship becomes tortuous and Robert descends into near madness. Forced to flee with a stranger, Ann delves into her past, to be jolted by a series of revelations about her lover, her parentage, the stranger and herself.
