Hesketh Pearson's biography is the first to combine the story of the two men whose lives were inseparable in the history of literature. The book starts with Samuel Johnson's career up to the moment he met Boswell, then we follow James Boswell's until he met Johnson, and took him on a journey to the Hebrides. From this point their lives mingled. Pearson has included reliable contemporary accounts of Johnson, such as Fanny Burney's, and has skilfully made sense of Boswell's own writings to form a clearer picture of the man of letters.
