bookshelves: sampled-to-read, biography

I enjoyed Johnson’s Intellectuals, which offered biographies of a variety of famous people whose primary product was ideas. This time, Johnson is tackling creators, those whose primary product was poetry, music, novels, art, or movies. I look forward to reading this collection. Based on the sample I’ve read (up to half way through the second chapter), it seems that, as with Intellectuals, he will be attempting to draw some common threads through the lives of these characters while revealing their fascinating idiosyncrasies.
