Enter the life and remarkable times of the lovable Samuel Pepys (pronounced "peeps"). Born in London in 1633, the son of a tailor, he began keeping a diary on January 1, 1660, and continued for nine years, faithfully recording the rich and varied details of 17th century London life. Writing in a form of shorthand—which was not deciphered until 1825—he also painted a vivid picture of Pepys the man.

In part one (1660-1663), he strives to establish himself in his career and in society. Part two (1664-1666) features his unforgettable eyewitness accounts of two famous events: The Plague and the Great Fire of London. In part three (1667-1669), Pepys is enjoying his position as a surveyor-general in the Royal Navy—and having an affair with his wife's servant. Uniquely uninhibited, deeply personal, full of wit and style, Pepys' Diary is a biographical masterpiece.
