The most famous friendship in English literature arose between a distinguished 18th–century author and his young admirer. The result is this brilliant narrative and its enduring portrait of an age as well as person. James Boswell profiles critic, author, and poet Samuel Johnson, recapturing the sage's wit and conversational style on topics from literature and politics to religion and gossip. This edition provides an accessible, abridged edition of the classic biography.
