John Aubrey

My Own Life, Nominiert: James Tait Black Prize 2016, Nominiert: Costa Biography Award 2016, Nominiert: Longman-History Today Book Prize 2015

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2015 COSTA BIOGRAPHY AWARD
This is the autobiography that John Aubrey never wrote.
You may not know his name. Aubrey was a modest man, a gentleman-scholar who cared far more for the preservation of history than for his own legacy. But he was a passionate collector, an early archaeologist and the inventor of modern biography.
With all the wit, charm and originality that characterises her subject, Ruth Scurr has seamlessly stitched together John Aubrey's own words to tell his life story and a captivating history of seventeenth-century England unlike any other.
'A game-changer in the world of biography' Mary Beard
'Ingenious' Hilary Mantel
'Irresistible' Philip Pullman
Rezension
" My Own Life is light, ingenious, inspiring, a book to reread and cherish . The vigour and spirit on every page would delight John Aubrey, that most individual of thinkers and writers, who has found a biographer of originality and wit. It is reverent, charming, poignant: it is made of the same ingredients as its subject." Hilary Mantel
