Aaron
An investigation of the life that produced many classic titles. Confirmation that if you write what you know, you can produce great works. Many of Hesse's novels are very autobiographical.
Hilary
Pilgrim of Crisis is a comprehensive insight into one of the 20th centuries most significant authors.
