About the Author

Richard Davenport-Hines is a historian, literary biographer, and former Research Fellow of the London School of Economics. He has edited two previous collections of Hugh Trevor-Roper's writings, Letters from Oxford (2006) and Wartime Journals (2011). His other previous books include Dudley Docker: The Life and Times of a Trade Warrior, for which he won the Wolfson Prize, biographies of W. H. Auden and Marcel Proust, Titanic Lives, and, most recently, An English Affair: Sex, Class and Power in the Age of Profumo.

Adam Sisman is a freelance writer, specializing in biography. His first book was a life of Hugh Trevor-Roper's rival, the historian A.J.P. Taylor (1994), and he has more recently written the authorized biography of Trevor-Roper himself (2010). Sisman's other work includes Boswell's Presumptuous Task (2000), which was awarded the National Books Critics Circle prize for biography, and The Friendship: Wordsworth and Coleridge (2006). He is currently at work on a life of John le Carre.
