Book Description:
With this collection of short and fascinating biographical pieces, the award winning biographer of Coleridge and Shelley offers a fascinating glimpse into the mysterious art of biography.

When researching, Richard Holmes has often become captivated by figures peripheral to his main subject, literary forays that he couldn t resist. These tales the forbidden love of John Stuart Mill, the bizarre novel of Oscar Wilde s tragic grand uncle, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald s nightmarish yet cathartic final trip to Paris are part of what comprises Sidetracks, a marvelously original that includes letters and travelogues, radio plays, essays, and minature biographies. This book is a rare literary feast and an exploration of the creative processes of one of our most preeminent biographers.
