Patrick AndersonMake no mistake, this is a thriller, however literary. When John finally has his brother and Johnson in his grasp…the reader, even if he strongly suspects that both men lived well past 1763, is caught up in the passion and terror of the moment. One of the novel's several wonders is that the mad brother is just as compelling a character as his soon-to-be-immortal sibling. If you're interested in Boswell and Johnson, or in 18th-century England, or in brilliant storytelling, The Brothers Boswell is not to be missed. And if you enjoy it, you might want to seek out The X President, because it's great fun, too.
