Publication date

Bringer of Riches is the title of my biography of Nikolaus Pevsner, begetter of The Buildings of England, published by Chatto & Windus on August 18, 2011. Pevsner’s habit of keeping diaries and correspondence over a long and astoundingly productive life created far more material than I could possibly include in the main text. The footnotes ran into the hundreds, and even they had to be brief. So the purpose of this blog will be to share – and to invite – more information about this extraordinary man.

    Dear Susie,

    I have been scanning your blog in anticipation of the forthcoming biography! Any idea when it will be out? I certainly could have used much of this material I have read in your bog a year or so back when we were putting the final draft together for the Getty.

    Many thanks for your sensitive thoughts on “my” book. I’m not sure where you are based, but I will be in London next April, trying to organise a Townscape symposium for July 2011. I wonder if you would like to meet and have a coffee and chat?

    Best,

    mathew
