In the spring of 1816, a 'knot of scribblers, male and female, with weak nerves and disordered brain' gathered in Geneva. This account of the three months that Byron, Shelley, Mary Godwin, Claire Clairmont and John Polidori spent together tells how their stormy ménage, charged with artistic and sexual tensions, fuelled an outburst of creativity that produced Byron's Childe Harold, Shelley's 'Mont Blanc', Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and the first great vampire novel, Polidori's The Vampyre.
