Talking Location With author Graham Hurley: BAKU
GIVEAWAY – 3 copies of “Walking Pepys’s London”
18th April 2021
We are delighted to be able to offer 3 copies “Walking Pepys’s London” by Jacky Colliss Harvey. UK only entry.
Samuel Pepys walked round London for miles. The 2 1/2 miles to Whitehall from his house near the Tower of London was accomplished on an almost daily basis, and so many of his professional conversations took place whilst walking that the streets became for him an alternative to his office. With Pepys’s London, the reader will come to know life in London from the pavement up and see its streets from the perspective of this renowned diarist. The city was almost as much a character in Pepys’s life as his family or friends, and the book draws many parallels between his experience of 17th-century London and the lives of Londoners today. Colliss Harvey’s new book reconstructs the sensory and emotional experience of the past, bringing geography, biography and history into one. Full of fascinating details and written with extraordinary sensitivity, Pepys’s London is an unmissable exploration into the places that made the greatest English diarist of all time.
