In 1762 Boswell, then 22 years old, left Edinburgh for London. This is the famous journal he kept during the next nine months as an intimate account of his encounters with the high-life & the low-life in London. With frank and confessional as a personal portrait of the young Boswell, the Journal is also revealing as a vivid portrayal of life in 18th-century London.
