A fascinating biography of the renowned Orientalist and collector

About the Author

Louise Foxcroft is a prize-winning historian and Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Magdalene College, Cambridge. She has published six books, and has appeared on television and radio. www.louisefoxcroft.com


"A delightful portrait of 'John' Gayer-Anderson, which offers both insights into a fascinating man famed for his collecting of antiquities--now spread across the world's museums--and a mirror to the rapidly changing world of the first half of the 20th century. . . . Gayer-Anderson witnessed the fading of the British Empire alongside shifting attitudes to religion and sexuality. His unpublished memoirs, poetry, and drawings underpin this profile that is intimate, amusing, and sometimes gruesome."--Neal Spencer, British Museum
"Gayer-Anderson is a fascinating figure, his name commemorated today in the form of the ancient Egyptian cat sculpture that he gave to the British Museum--the Gayer-Anderson cat. So it is good to have an exhaustive biography at last of this remarkable man."--Penelope Lively
