Henry Oliver

About me:

I am writer, interested in late bloomers, failures, Samuel Johnson, literature, economics, architecture, London, politics, history.

My Substack is called The Common Reader and is written for people interested in reading the best books available, whenever they were written. I am also very interested in biography. My salons tend to be on literary topics like “Samuel Johnson” or “How to Read a Novel.”

I have written for the interintellect blog and appeared on the podcast to talk about reading and literature:
