For half a century Georgian Dublin revolved around Peg Plunkett, her liaisons and the brothels she ran. Blitzing her way through the ballrooms of polite society, she left a trail of dukes, barristers and lieutenants stranded in her wake. Then, facing old age in a debtors' prison, she hit on a solution: she published a no-holds-barred memoir. This biography draws on Peg's scandalous account to uncover the life of a fascinating woman.
