This landmark collection of more than twenty essays reflects the intersections between biography, autobiography and literature. Several pieces focus upon the contentious sub-genre of literary biography, others examine the autobiographical threads that are detectable in literary writing and in a variety of other forms, and a number of well-known writers – notably Alan Sillitoe, Ruth Fainlight, D.J. Taylor and Martin Amis – offer their own opinions on these and related matters. Significantly, the essays indicate a softening of the antipathies between highly theorized, text-based positions on literary biography and more traditional author-centred approaches.
