Written Lives

Chris has asked me to nominate a book for his next get together. Intrigued by a link in Arts and Letters Daily to this review, I propose
Rimbaud, Conrad, Rilke, Mann, Dinesen, Maugham, Lowry, Mishima, Turgenev, Joyce, Faulkner et al. Great writers, disastrous people...

to join Brideshead Revisited and Birds Without Wings (which I have read) plus The Discovery of Slowness (which I have not).

Interesting to note that both 'Written Lives' and 'Slowness' are being put out by the same independent publisher: Cannongate Books.
