Arthur Bryant's brilliant biography of the great 17th-Century diarist Samuel Pepys is renowned as a classic. This first volume brings to vivid life both Pepys who, in 1660, began keeping his famous Diary, and the dramatic times in which he lived: the Restoration of Charles II, the Great Plague and the Fire of London, an economic crisis and a European war. Bryant's sureness of touch and clarity of style make this one of the most entertaining and interesting biographies in the English language. 'An extraordinary, thrilling and at times almost fantastic tale that Arthur Bryant has spun out of Pepys's hitherto unexplored manuscripts in a book that will appeal to the learned arid unlearned alike'
THE TIMES
'He has written a biography which makes the Diary itself more interesting... not only full of local and temporal colour, but such large events as the Restoration of the Monarchy are made plausible to the imagination by conveying to us the very thrill and quiver of reaction in the country'
