In 1762 James Boswell, then 22 years old, left Edinburgh for London. The famous Journal he kept during the next nine months is an intimate account of his encounters with the high-life and the low-life in London.

Frank and confessional as a personal portrait of the young Boswell, the Journal is also revealing as a vivid portrayal of life in 18th-century London. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I read this because it has descriptions of the 10th and 11th Earls of Eglinton (cousins to my husbands family). That was really the only reason, but I do remember being fascinated by Boswell himself and his ability to record the time in which he lived. "

    " I truly believe the term "brownnoser" has never been more adequate a descriptor than when it is applied to James Boswell. I will collect my favorite quotes and add them here shortly. "

    " I found it terribly interesting and illuminating. "

    " I have tried to read this book more than once, but Boswell--when he is his normal, unguarded self--comes across as the most excruciating little narcissistic prick you've ever come across between the pages of a journal. "
