Description
Richard Holmes

“Almost unfairly gifted both as a writer of living, luminous prose and as a tireless researcher” (Time), Richard Holmes is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, a Fellow of the British Academy, and a knight in the Order of the British Empire. He is best known for his biographies of Romanticism’s leading figures, including The Age of Wonder, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Royal Society Prize. This Long Pursuit is a meditation on the art of biography that fuses the author’s own story as a biographer with a history of the genre that reveals how it expresses both fiction and fact.
