Summary

By Richard Holmes, abridged by Jill Waters. The author reflects on 50 years writing about the lives of others and celebrates the art of the biography, beginning by setting out his two rules of the genre. Firstly, the importance of following in the footsteps of his subjects - where they grew up, worked, lived, travelled and died - and secondly separating the facts from the speculation. Read by Patrick Malahide.
