Synopsis: (Finalist for the 2015 Costa Biography Award) A historian, biographer, and literary critic whose Fatal Purity was listed among the 100 Best Books of the Decade by London's Times, Ruth Scurr gives us this genre-busting diary-biography of perfect 17th-century gentleman John Aubrey. "I was born about sun rising in my maternal grandfather's bedchamber on 12th March 1626. St. Gregory's Day, very sickly, likely to die," wrote Aubrey. He dedicated his life to preserving what he saw as the greatness of England-the habits of Christopher Wren, Isaac Newton, and Thomas Hobbes; the stones of Stonehenge; and the stained glass of forgotten churches-and Scurr collects the many fragments of his peripatetic journals into a stunning mosaic life story.

About the Author: Ruth Scurr is an historian, biographer and literary critic. She teaches history and politics at Cambridge University, where she is a Lecturer and Fellow of Gonville & Caius College. Her first book, Fatal Purity: Robespierre and the French Revolution won the Franco-British Society Literary Prize, was longlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize, shortlisted for the Duff Cooper Prize and was listed among the 100 Best Books of the Decade in The Times. She reviews regularly for the Times Literary Supplement, The Telegraph and the Wall Street Journal.
