Item description for Hazlitt in Love: A Fatal Attachment by Jon Cook...
When William Hazlitt moved into 9 Southampton Buildings, Holborn, England, in August 1820, little did he know that his life would soon be turned upside down. On meeting 19-year-old Sarah Walker, his new landlady's daughter, as she served him breakfast on his first morning, he conceived a deep infatuation.
