Richard Holmes knew he had become a true biographer the day his bank bounced a check that he had inadvertently dated 1772. Because for the acclaimed chronicler of Shelly and Coleridge, biography is a physical pursuit, an ardent and arduous retracing of footsteps that may have vanished centuries before. In this gripping book, Holmes takes us from France's Massif Central, where he followed the route taken by Robert Louis Stevenson and a sweet-natured donkey, to Mary Wollstonecraft's Revolutionary Paris, to the Italian villages where Percy Shelly tried to cast off the structures of English morality and marriage. Footsteps is a wonderful exploration of the ties between biographers and their subjects, filled with passion and revelation.

Richard Holmes was born in London in 1945 and educated at Downside School and Churchill College, Cambridge.In 1974 he published Shelley: The Pursuit which won the Somerset Maugham Award and was described by Stephen Spender as "surely the best biography of Shelley ever written". He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and in 1992 was awarded an OBE.He lives in London and Norwich with the novelist Rose Tremain.
