Description

One day in November 1958, the celebrated historian Hugh Trevor-Roper received a curious letter. It was an appeal for help, written on behalf of a student at Magdalene College, with the unlikely claim that he was being persecuted by the Bishop of Oxford. Trevor-Roper agreed to a meeting.

It was to be his first encounter with Robert Parkin Peters: plagiarist, fraudulent priest and imposter extraordinaire. Adam Sisman follows Peters’ life of eccentricity and incredible narcissism across seven marriages (three bigamous), multiple deportations and a disastrous appearance on Mastermind.
