Get the book, but not this edition, which is so shabby. You can't tell where some quotations begin and end, some are in French and some are not translated, it's difficult to access footnotes with my kindle, and the illustrations are dreary monochrome. There are the usual glitches in line spacing and oddly laid out words that I associate with Kindle versions. As a book it is tremendous; as a 'product' it's awful and off-putting.
I would recommend any interested in M.W. to read this book first before reading in detail her writings.
My only gripe, and this is not to do with Claire Tomalin, but with the way her books have been transcribed to the Kindle format. There are numerous typos, and this is common with all Kindle books I have purchased. Nothing you can't get to grips with, but annoying when you know how beautifully written and proofed her physical books are. Something is clearly going wrong in the transcription process.
