Book Description:
In October 1993, a novelist is invited to go to Stockholm and Russia to take part in what is enigmatically referred to as the Diderot Project. In Stockholm he is joined by various other members of the project including an academic, a lustful opera singer, and a Swedish diplomat. On the journey to Russia more is revealed about the great Enlightenment writer Denis Diderot the son of a knife maker in Langres, who went to Paris and compiled the Encyclopedia, a book that changed the world.

In alternating narratives, Bradbury brilliantly recreates the climate of the eighteenth century as Diderot journeys to Russia at the behest of Catherine the Great for discussions on the nature of the late 18th century world as well as the twentieth century academic milieu.

'An exuberant, enchanting literary valedictory.' (Washington Times)

'To the Hermitage reads like a love letter to the life of the mind from a man who, in his work as a writer, critic, academic and teacher has done much to contribute to the dizzying circulation of ideas.' (The Independent on Sunday)
