Who Is Peter Ackroyd?

Peter Ackroyd is a writer, in more ways than one: biographer, historian, poet, novelist. People like to describe him as eccentricMr. Ackroyd is a bit of a recluse, likes to drink, and still writes longhand. Some people consider that type of behavior somewhat peculiar. But he is without a doubt a prolific writer and has written so many books you may not know where to begin.


Suggest you start with The Trial of Elizabeth Cree; it’s a murder mystery set in 1880 Victorian London.


Or … you could try to tackle his voluminous works of the History of England or his retelling of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.


Actually, since it is Halloween season, maybe his collection of English ghost stories might be fun!
