is the opening paragraph of Hermione Lee's review of Clair Tomlin's biography of Samuel Pepys.http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2002/oc ... biography1Sex, drink, plague, fire, music, marital conflict, the fall of kings, corruption and courage in public life, wars, navies, public executions, incarceration in the Tower: Samuel Pepys's life is full of irresistible material, and Claire Tomalin seizes it with both hands.
