Meet Anne Lister, the 18th Century landowner, industrialist, explorer and lesbian, and your new feminist icon. Examining the diaries that inspired the major new eight-part BBC One drama starting Suranne Jones (Doctor Foster) and created, written and directed by Sally Wainwright (Last Tango In Halifax, Happy Valley).

'There are more ways than one of being happy... I am living proof of this.'

Anne Lister was remarkable. Fearless, charismatic and determined to explore her lesbian sexuality, she forged her own path in a society that had no language to define her. She was a landowner, an industrialist and a prolific diarist, whose output has secured her legacy as one of the most fascinating figures of the 19th century.

''Gentleman Jack - The Real Anne Lister'' follows Anne from her crumbling ancestral home in Yorkshire to the glittering courts of Denmark as she resolves to put past heartbreak behind her and find herself a wife. This book introduces the real Gentleman Jack, featuring unpublished journal extracts decrypted for the first time by series creator Sally Wainwright and writer Anne Choma.

Authors: Anne Lister, Anne Choma, with a foreword by Sally Wainwright
