IN SEARCH OF SIR THOMAS BROWNE The Life and Afterlife of the Seventeenth Century's Most Inquiring Mind

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Simon Vance

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

This fine audio production illustrates the great appeal of audiobooks today, not just for mainstream titles but also for those pockets of interest that seemingly target only a narrow range of listeners. Essayist, stylist, and prolific word-maker Sir Thomas Browne is almost forgotten in literature today, but he’s a fascinating personality, and his life and writings prove highly illustrative of his age, especially its medical practices and beliefs. Simon Vance is adept at balancing the author’s contemporary approach with Browne’s famously baroque style. This reflective biography is probably not for everyone, but for those who love the unique and obscure and odd, as Browne did, this title offers many pleasures. D.A.W.
