More than 4 weeks availability
King Camp Gillette's safety razor - eight years in the making - revolutionised a dangerous chore, and made its creator a very rich man. In this incisive biography, Tim Dowling examines the contradictions at the heart of the razor king, a socialist utopian who fulminated against the evils of capitalism while at the same time zealously embracing his role as father of the disposable economy.
Born in Connecticut, Tim Dowling moved to London in 1992. He writes for the Guardian and The Times, and is currently working on a book on fatherhood.
