Description

An anthology of Peter Ackroyd's journalism, reviews, lectures, short stories and introductions. Peter Ackroyd, acclaimed novelist and biographer, has also written countless book reviews and articles for the Spectator, on literature, film and culture. The Collection offers a selection of these incisive and witty pieces. In them, Ackroyd first explored the ideas that he would later develop in his prize-winning novels and biographies. The articles from the 1980s and 90s that have been chosen by Thomas Wright also throw interesting light on Ackroyd's books and reveal his attitudes to literature and art. The Collection also contains articles on the work of contemporary painters and much previously unpublished material. The short stories date from every period of Ackroyd's writing career; one of them is Ackroyd's first published work of fiction.
