Description
In early 19th-century England, charming young William Jackson racks up enormous debts as he attempts to keep up with his wealthy friends. Drawing heavily upon a detailed dossier compiled by Jackson's father, Nicola Phillips's history chronicles Jackson's fall from respectability, as he associates with prostitutes, suffers from venereal diseases, engages in dueling, and—convicted of fraud—is sent to Australia for incarceration. Philips also places this case in the context of Georgian society, demonstrating that William Jackson was a victim of both the prevailing views of parent-child relations and a brutal criminal justice system.
