MR PEPYS DIARY: Comedian Steve Coogan as Samuel Pepys
As Robert Latham, one-time curator of the Pepys Library at Magdalen College, commented, the Pepys Diary of the 1670s and 1680s "must rank as one of the most interesting books never written."
The most readable and the most lavishly illustrated of the three books reviewed here, Ollard's Pepys adds to and corrects Sir Arthur Bryant's biography, as well as revises his own 1974 edition in the light of Dr Latham's new edition of Pepys Diary and the companion volume.
