Shorter Potted Brief, Brief Lives

Recalling the gossipy tone of John Aubrey’s (1626–97) ‘Brief Lives’, a modern collection of absurdly abbreviated, potted biographies. Collecting a single, unadorned fact about each of his subjects, creating a cornucopia of entertaining little nuggets; perfect for readers to deploy at dinner parties! The result is a collection ranging from Richard Nixon's favourite pastime (mashing potatoes) to Gertrude Stein's preferred writing method (in the presence of cows), and from the name of Michael Tippett's refrigerator ('Bernard Levin') to George Orwell's terse diary entries on the subject of eggs.

Hardback, 212 pages, 25 B & W drawings.
8" x 5".
£5.49   was £12.99
