From Bridget, Nov 2007 (not sure if a loan?)

I really enjoyed this autobiography in which, like in the Waugh Fathers and Sons book, Holroyd takes something of a back seat. In his epilogue he clarifies that he wanted to show the process of biography as well as its results, and this he duly does. I enjoy his brief incursions into his excellent biographies, and enjoyed this touching work very much too.
