Abstract:

This volume is a biography of English novelist Patrick O'Brian (1914-2000). O'Brian is best known for his Aubrey-Maturin series of novels set in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars and centered on the friendship between English Naval Captain Jack Aubrey and the Irish-Catalan physician Stephen Maturin. The 20-novel series is known for its well-researched and highly detailed portrayal of early 19th century life, as well as its authentic and evocative language. O'Brian died in the Westbury Hotel in Dublin, Ireland. Like his life, O'Brian's death was marked by secrecy and confusion, sharpening the curiosity of his many readers who for years have speculated about the man behind the beloved series of novels. This work unveils the story of Richard Patrick Russ, a writer and intellectual who emerged from the Second World War as Patrick O'Brian, a persona created by his imagination and refined over decades. To research this book, the author crisscrossed Europe to speak to long-lost relatives, friends, and colleagues of his famously reclusive subject.
