Peculiar People: The Story of My Life

These days, hardly anyone remembers Augustus John Cuthbert Hare (1834-1903). But in his prime, the late Victorian age, his name was on the lips of anyone who mattered. He was a travel writer, a story teller and memoirist of the first order, and his work is a fascinating record of a lost way of life amongst the strangest upper classes of English society. Hare's 6-volume autobiography was published between 1899-1903 in England; and this is a 1-volume condensation of this remarkable work.
