+A very interesting view of how a biographer started her career in the
+seventies, with two heavy-weights, Beckett and de Beauvoir. Bair calls the
+book a /bio-memoir/, and it's indeed quite deserving of a name of its own for
+its genre. One learns of the struggle it was not only to be a biographer of
+famous writers still living (and her fascinating relationship with them) but
+also to be a successful woman in the seventies. And there are lots of
+interesting details about her writing process, and its all too human side.
+Very well written all around, it really whets your appetite: i've already
+ordered her Beckett bio!
