I noticed that there are some books which specifically deal with the lives of other list authors. The ones I've come across are:
Summer in Baden-Baden and The Master of Petersburg about Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The Hours about Virginia Woolf
The Master about Henry James

Has anyone come across any others?

But that one's no list book!

Hi Ellinor, I thought about reading 'The Forbidden Kingdom' soon. Would you say one needs to read Luis de Camoes first?

I wouldn‘t say it‘s necessary. I read the Forbidden Kingdom first and don‘t think I missed anything.

That's good to know, thanks!
