The TLS Lecture: Pepys the Novel
Hay Festival 1999
The Hawthornden-prizewinning novelist and TLS editor talks about the remarkable rebirth of the historical novel and recounts how a chance discovery in Pepys' diary led him to write Jem (and Sam), a Restoration saga of ambition and revenge, the second of his Tales of History and Imagination.
