Product description

Review

A visceral, earthy writer (Hermione Lee)

Vigorous, precise, enchanting ... the most ordinary and the most extraordinary writer you will ever meet (Claire Tomalin)

About the Author

Samuel Pepys (1633-1703) was a naval administrator, Member of Parliament and best remembered as a diarist. Kept between 1660-1669 and written in Shelton's shorthand, Pepys' diary recorded major historical events, like The Plague and The Great Fire of London alongside his more personal concerns and activities, including politics, his work in public life and rows with his wife, Elizabeth. Throughout are his fulsome thoughts on food, including his first encounters with drinking chocolate.
