Tony Nicholson has given us a number of superb talks at our meetings over the last few years, regaling us with tales from the lives of Gus and Annie. His ‘Secrets from the Attic’ talks always leave us desperate to hear the next part of the saga.
In his long awaited new book, ‘The Love of Dangerous Men: A Secret History in Letters’, we finally get the full story of the complex tale of Gus and Annie. Tony leads us from the discovery of a bundle of letters and photographs in the attic of his home in Brotton, exploring tales of intrigue that he has discovered among the streets of Calcutta and Victorian Whitechapel, and takes us through to the modern day with the connections that he has made with decedents of the family.
Tony will be giving us a talk on a new subject, ‘The Langworthy Mystery’, on Wednesday 20 December (see our talks programme for details) and will have copies of his book available to buy, making the perfect last-minute Christmas present for any history lover.
‘The Love of Dangerous Men: A Secret History in Letters‘ is also available from Amazon in paperback or for the Kindle.
