Who is Peter Ackroyd?
Hmmm ... let me think. Is he the guy in the picture?
Nope! But you're close! The guy in the picture below is Charles Dickens. Ackroyd wrote a biography about Dickens. He also wrote a bio about William Shakespeare, in case the mention about the Charles Dickens bio is not impressive enough. :)
