Patrick O'Brian: A Life Revealed

by

Patrick O'Brian: A Life Revealed Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In January 2000, Patrick O'Brian died in the Westbury Hotel in Dublin, Ireland. Like his life, O'Brian's death was marked by secrecy and confusion, sharpening the curiosity of his many readers who for years have speculated about the man behind the beloved Aubery-Maturin series of novels.

Dean King at last unveils the story of Richard Patrick Russ, a writer and intellectual who emerged from the Second World War as Patrick O'Brian, a persona created by his imagination and refined over decades. To research this book, King crisscrossed Europe to speak to long-lost relatives, friends, and colleagues of his famously reclusive subject; now he has fashioned this wealth of information into a dramatic and compelling narrative. As King meticulously examines the events of O'Brian's life, he deepens and enriches our understanding and appreciation of O'Brian's work.

Synopsis:

Published on the first anniversary of his death, this meticulously researched biography delves into the secrecy and confusion surrounding Patrick O'Brian, author of the Aubery-Maturin series of novels. "(O'Brian) devotees should rejoice in this account of his life, written with appreciative balance, rich with literary insight".--"Los Angeles Times". 16-page photo insert.
