Aphra Behn: A Secret Life.
This is a newly revised reissue of the original bio published in 1996. Behn is more famous now, and there has been additional insight into her life as the first woman to earn her living by writing. Behn was a spy, a world-traveler, a raucous and powerful Restoration playwright, early novelist, poet, royalist, rebel. From humble origins she rose to fame and became a major player in political events of her time. Todd does her justice in this entertaining, accessible work. Fentum Press, London. 2017. Paper.
