Winding Stair by Daphne Du Maurier
Many accounts of the life of Francis Bacon have been written for scholars. But du Maurier's aim in this biography was to illuminate the many facets of Bacon's remarkable personality for the common reader. To her book she brought the same gifts of imagination and perception that made her earlier biography, Golden Lads, so immensely readable, siklfully threading into her narrative extracts from contemporary documents and from Bacon's own writings, and setting her account of his life within a vivid contemporary framework. This is truly history made alive.
Unlike many authors of popular historical biographies, du Maurier resembled Antonia Fraser in being an indefatigable researcher Francis KingISBN: 9781844080748
