Reviews

  • With this splendidly conceived and exquisitely written double biography - of both Montaigne the man and Montaigne the book - Sarah Bakewell should persuade another generation to fall in love with Montaigne

    Sunday Times
  • How to live is a superb, spirited introduction to the master, and should have its readers rushing straight to the essays themselves

    Adam Thorpe, Guardian
  • Sarah Bakewell has written a marvellously confident and clear introduction to Montaigne...a rare achievement. Sarah Bakewell deserves congratulations for opening Montaigne to new readers so very appealingly

    Evening Standard
  • Illuminating and humane book... It's rare to come across a biographer who remains so deliciously fond of her subject... How to Live will delight and illuminate

    Independent
  • Bakewell writes with verve. This is an intellectually lively treatment of a Renaissance giant and his world

    Daily Telegraph
