Sharpe's Story (Book #127)

Sharpe's Story (Bernard Cornwell, 2007) is a booklet containing two essays--a long one about the origins and growth of the Sharpe series and a shorter one about Cornwell's childhood with abusive adoptive parents who were members of a cultic church. All I'll say about the second is that I've long since stopped being surprised by the evil that humans will do in the name of God, but I haven't stopped being infuriated by it.

As for the rest of the book, if you're a Sharpe fan who's read most of the series, you'll enjoy the window into the author's mind.
