I'm spending this year with Samuel Pepys, diarist and citizen at large in London of the 17th century. This includes all the diaries and a fabulous biography of Charles II to learn more of the Restoration. I think my trip to England went to my head! Click on the title Don't Mind Me for a link to the online version of Pepys's diary.
At the same time I will be reading War and Peace by Tolstoy and studying the Napoleonic Wars, as well as reading Proust's Remembrance of Lost Time (A la Recherche du Temps Perdu) in English and French.
See you next summer!
