Biography: a very short introduction by Hermione Lee




"Very short" but very good; Hermione Lee takes the reader on a tour of the biography from from antiquity to the present day, always maintaining a critical distance and humour throughout. A primer; it strikes me that that the contents are easily applied to new biography forms (and tools) manifest in social media. Barthes was wrong. The author isn't dead; just on Instagram.
