Reviews

[Nicholls is] a peerless historical sleuth. At once a biographer, an explorer and an investigator, he captures the past and its people in lightning-flashes of illumination. In Nicholl's hands, the driest document can rise from the past and shine. Let's hope for many more scintillating revelations from this magician of lost lives -- Boyd Tonkin * Independent * History leaves traces of the people - Byron, Shakespeare, Rimbaud, Leonardo - living through it, in portraits, documents and books. In Traces Remain, Charles Nicholl transforms these glimpses through time into comic and poignant vignettes, and curious, intriguing puzzles * Financial Times *
