Patrick O'Brian: A Life Revealed.
King is an authority on nautical history and literature, therefore the perfect biographer for O'Brian. O'Brian was in his 70's before his rise to fame for his series featuring the beloved characters Maturin and Captain Aubrey. He seems to know everything about the Napoleonic wars, the British Navy, and, well, everything. Occasionally declared the best historical novelist ever, he was a secretive man with an complex life, and as you always knew, he was a lover of Jane Austen. Like new.
