Reflections on Biography


Intended for all readers of biography--lifelong or occasional, critical or casual--this original book by an award-winning biographer examines biography from many angles, and gives a tour of the decisions its writers make and some of the implications of those choices. Its aim is to increase the pleasure of reading biographies, to add new, enjoyable dimensions even as it increases readers' insights into the art of writing them. The book concludes with observations about the form's future directions and challenges.
