Description - Facts and Fiction: A Book of Storytelling by Michael Holroyd
'As deft and devastating as a piece of non-fiction writing in miniature as you're ever likely to read ... A collection to be savoured, its urbanity, wisdom and humorous probing best digested at leisure' Daily Telegraph
In Facts and Fiction, Michael Holroyd reflects on the eccentricities of the art of writing about others. With characteristic playfulness and guilefulness, he considers the ways in which lives can be written about, with all the subtle differences of design and intention that this entails.
From Rudyard Kipling to forgetfulness, the glories of Mary Norton's Borrowers books to fellow biographers like Richard Holmes and Alexander Masters, Holroyd tackles an eclectic range of topics with wit, warmth and humour. This is a unique insight into the mind of a master.
