William Boyd

This isn’t the Life of Henry Brulard – it’s a pseudonym, swiftly discarded. It’s actually the life of Henri Beyle, aka “Stendhal”, and is one of the most extraordinary autobiographies ever written, up there with Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s The Confessions. Candid, tormented, passionate, outspoken – the man who was Stendhal comes vibrantly, unforgettably alive.
