Christopher Wren, by James Chambers, is published by Sutton Publishing Limited, 260 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10001, 800-758-3756, $9.95, paperback, 1998.

James Chambers’ Christopher Wren, another title in Sutton’s “Pocket Biographies” series, filled in some gaps in my knowledge of this multi-talented genius. From his first chapter, “A Miracle of a Youth,” in which Chambers explores young Wren’s promising childhood to “The Royal Architect,” in which he highlights the master’s greatest architectural achievements, Chambers traces the people and events that shaped Wren’s fascinating life.
