‘I shook all the dates in my head like whitebait in a fish basket and hoped for the best.’ – A.J.P. Taylor
When was George Bernard Shaw introduced to sexuality? Did Rome really fall in 410 AD? What caused Andrew O’Hagan to decide to hate football for life? Which day in the life of Samuel Pepys is the most memorable? How astrologically auspicious was the date of the LRB’s founding? For whom did the events of 4 June 1989 change everything?
A new year means a new LRB Diary with a brand new set of timely excerpts from the archive, seasonal artworks by Jon McNaught, and useful pages including, for the first time ever, the LRB guide to proofing marks! Last year’s was a sell-out, even though Covid made diarising anything impossible, so for 2022, the first year of the rest of our lives, we say – don’t delay!
The diary measures 15.5 cm (6 inches) wide x 21.5 cm (8 inches) high. It also has a ribbon and back internal pocket.
