About this product
- DescriptionThis collection takes the form of a series of essays and subjects to look at the process of biography. Richard Holmes has written a biography once every four or five years. His research is slow and spreads out in many unexpected directions, where Holmes often learns most about his subjects.
- Author BiographyRichard Holmes is our greatest living biographer. His biography of Shelley won the Somerset Maugham Prize. Footsteps (1985) revolutionized the way biography was thought about and written. The first part of his biography of Coleridge won the 1989 Whitbread Book of the Year Prize. His portrait of the friendship between Dr Johnson and Mr Savage won the James Tait Black Prize. The concluding volume of his Coleridge biography won the Duff Cooper Prize and the William Heinemann award. He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy, and lives in London and Norwich with the novelist Rose Tremain.
