Read in August, 2012

A biography of a prolific author by a prolific author. This is a delicious biography that takes you into the world of a writer of the 19th cntury with surprising parallels to the writer's world today: dealing with publicity, publishers, fans and contracts as well as finding the time to write, looking for good stories, imbibing stimulants to keep awake. All there and all fluently told.
