Description
Revelations and racy anecdotes about the lives of the rich and famous of Dublin and London abound within the memoirs of Peg Plunkett (1727-97). From a violent domestic background, Peg blitzed her way through balls and masquerades creating scandals and gossip wherever she went, leaving dukes, barristers and lieutenants stranded in her wake. She was the first madam ever to write her memoirs, thereby setting the template for the courtesan chronicle.

Endlessly fascinating, informative and insightful. IRISH TIMES
