Daniel Defoe

£5.99

Product description

The colorful life of a literary phenomenon and masterfully crafted biography that's won applause from readers and critics alike. Intimate with monarchs, pilloried at Newgate Prison, hounded by his creditors to the day he died, the maverick newsman, satirist, soldier, and spy Daniel Defoe did not so much defy contradiction as epitomize it. So Richard West continually demonstrates in this spirited biography of the indefatigable Puritan pamphleteer who earned himself literary immortality with such novels as the scandalous Moll Flanders and the all-time bestselling Robinson Crusoe.

Used, very good. Some of the corners of the cover are a little bent, particularly the bottom left corner on the back cover. There is a line drawn in marker across the top page ends. There is a crease on the spine.
