About this book
A warm and accessible work of popular philosophy, based on the works of the great Renaissance writer Michel de Montaigne. 'One of the best books I have read on Montaigne.' Nicholas Shakespeare
In the year 1570, at the age of thirty-seven, Michel de Montaigne gave up his job as a magistrate and retired to his chateau to brood on his own private grief - the deaths of his best friends, his brother, and his first-born child. This title offers a celebration of perhaps one of the most joyful and yet profound of all Renaissance writers.
