Mad, bad and dangerous to know', Lord Byron was not just one of England's finest poets, he was also history's first true rock star, living a life of abundant extravagance and shocking scandal that led eventually to self-imposed exile in Europe. Through his travels, Byron carved out a new life, remaining true to himself to the end. So when journalist Julietta Jameson is compelled by emotional crisis to embark on her own period of personal exile, whose footsteps better to follow in than those of her beloved Byron? Her suitcase filled with his verse, Julietta traces the path of this luminary poet through the Alps, across Italy and over the Mediterranean, and in doing so, learns to live her life in truth, just as he did. Me, Myself and Lord Byron is a story of parallel journeys - that of the infamous Lord Byron, and of a woman on a heartfelt mission to reclaim her life. Julietta explores the flipside of Byron's celebrity - his insecurities, fears and regrets. And against the sumptuous backdrop of Switzerland, Italy and Greece, she reminds us that it's never too late to rediscover yourself.
