Having gushed about Patrick O'Brian the novelist, it would only be fair to consider Patrick O'Brian the man. Unfortunately, it now appears that he spent most of his life constructing a facade. It doesn't decrease my enjoyment of his books; indeed, I'm impressed that such a prickly, ornery old man can create such wonderful, human characters. Orwell is a contrary bastard, and you sense that in his writing. O'Brian, on the other hand, never gives the game away. Still, I'm now persuaded that I wouldn't want O'Brian as a neighbor. What a pity.
