'I like biography so much – because it's somehow easier being somebody else'

Saturday's Guardian included a double page feature on Jenny Uglow. The article makes several references to Thomas Bewick, the subject of her 2006 "Nature's Engraver"

"It is at home in Canterbury, now cluttered again with young children's toys, that she works on her books – as sharply detailed, humane and entertaining as Bewick's woodcuts."

Jenny's new book is "A Gambling Man: Charles II and the Restoration"
