Faber is excited to offer reading groups 10 advanced proof copies of Super-Infinite, Katherine Rundell’s phenomenal Sunday Times bestselling and Bailie Gifford Prize winning biography of John Donne that will sweep you off your feet and transport you into the world of Elizabethan London.
‘A wonderful, joyous piece of work . . . with fierce, interrogative intelligence. it is fantastic to have this most elusive and mysterious of men brought out into the light, for all to see. I just loved it.’ Maggie O’Farrell
‘Katherine Rundell makes Donne come alive as a remarkable and extraordinary and almost boundless human being. His life was one of despair and joy, the sacred and the profane, deep love and pain, and this book is filled with such infectious passion and fascinating detail that it shines like its subject. A triumph.’ Matt Haig
John Donne lived myriad lives. Sometime religious outsider and social disaster, sometime celebrity preacher and establishment darling, Donne was incapable of being just one thing.
He was a scholar of law, a sea adventurer, an MP, a priest, the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral – and perhaps the greatest love poet in the history of the English language.
In Super-Infinite, Katherine Rundell shows us the many sides of Donne’s extraordinary life, his obsessions, his blazing words, and his tempestuous Elizabethan times – unveiling Donne as the most remarkable mind and as a lesson in living.
