Borrowed from Bridget March 2008

Follow-up to Basil Street Blues, this deals with matters arising from that history of the author’s family, including dialogue with friends and strangers who contacted him after publication. As requested, there is more personal information about Holroyd, some redressing of inaccuracies in his earlier work, and more information searched out about the characters in that book, and some others.

I do like the way Holroyd, both in his biographies and, more explicitly, here, shows the actual WORK of the biographer, from the inside out. Fascinating reading.
