Peter Ackroyd

‘Chaucer is a natural subject for Ackroyd. He was a man in the thick of late 14th-century society: a diplomat, customs officer, court official, member of parliament, justice of the peace. He went abroad, and it was on trips to Genoa and Florence that he may have come across the works of Dante, Boccaccio and Petrarch that so influenced his own. Ackroyd is never better.’ Times
