Synopsis: New York published Biography

From Library Journal: Every Boswellian and Johnsonian will welcome this latest addition to the private papers of Bowell. As the volume opens, Boswell is heading for London to establish himself as an English barrister and is embroiled in a controversy prompted by remarks in his Tour (1785). As it ends, his wife has died, he is deeply in debt, and his English experiment has failed. Throughout, he is often ill and depressed. Yet he is also engaged in the work that will secure his immortality, the Life of Johnson (1791), and all is grist for his mill: If Lord Monboddo insults him, "it would make him fair game " in the book. Like its predecessors, this volume of Boswell's journal is a fascinating record of his progress and an intimate portrait of 18th-century life.
