Book Description London, Constable, 1989. Illustrierte Originalbroschur. Book Condition: Wie neu. Erste Auflage dieser Ausgabe.. xii, 272 Seiten mit vielen Abbildungen. Paperback edition. Very Good. Sehr guter Zustand. Frisches Exemplar. Wie ungelesen. Aus der Bibliothek der Gräfin Ledebur. - Brian Masters (born 1939) is British writer best known for his biographies of mass murderers. He has also written about the British aristocracy and worked as a translator. Masters "grew up in a prefab on the Old Kent Road",[1] Southwark to a "hunchback" mother with a weak chest and an illegitimate "no hoper" father.[2] During his adolescence, after he asked to interview television personality Gilbert Harding for the school magazine he had launched, Harding became close to him, and functioned as a mentor. Masters was apparently quite unfazed when Harding asked to watch him bathe.[1] The family having moved to Wales in a vain hope of improving his mother's health, Masters read French Literature and Philosophy at University of Wales, Cardiff where he gained a first in 1961. Briefly a teacher in France (as part of his degree), he worked for a time as a travel guide "organising educational tours for American students"[1] and then wrote books on French writers such as Molière (1970) and Camus, among others, without any pretence at them having any real originality.[1] The publisher Anthony Blond interested him in a book on the public's dreams about the Royal Family, which was the first of several books by Masters' on the British aristocracy. Masters is though best known for his books about serial killers, written with the co-operation of the subjects or their families. Masters corresponded with Dennis Nilsen from shortly after his arrest in February 1983, and met him in prison without having "felt the slightest unease" [3] during their time together. His book contains writings by Nilsen, and Masters considers various theories which attempt to explain Nilsen's actions. Masters reaches no final conclusion on "the essential unknowability of the human mind",[4] but Nilsen is "not a stranger amongst us" rather "an extreme instance of human possibility".[5] Masters was accused of being overly sympathetic to Nilsen at the time his book first appeared, a view he rejects in his memoir.[3] wikipedia--wiki-Brian_Masters Aus: wikipedia- Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 450 Englische Literatur des 20.
