Product Description

Review

'Famous for writing at great length on bearded men, Holroyd emerges here as a skilled miniaturist.knowledgeable, humorous & entertaining' MAIL ON S. 'If anyone still doubts that biographers are "proper" writers, rather than mere transcribers of life's rich record, then they should read this book . Even when he's being serious - & he is deadly serious about the genre that he has served so loyally for 30 years - he is enormous fun' NEW STATESMAN --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Michael Holroyd is the author of numerous biographies including Lytton Strachey, Augustus John and George Bernard Shaw. BASIL STREET BLUES (September 1999), his family autobiography, garnered 50per cent more end-of-year critics' choices than any other work of non-fiction that year. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Conan Doyle (& the trouble the family landed Hesketh Pearson in over the writing of his biography) & Elizabeth Longford. (I used to see Lord Longford on my way to work everyday outside The Reject Shop, Chelsea Town Hall 1983-87 as I had to change bus there). I do like Elizabeth Longford's writing style but I find the subjects she picks terrible so I can hardly read them! See earlier on my Profile page.
