Today I bought, on a whim, Written Lives, by Javier Marias, a series of short, dip-in-and-outable 'written lives' that 'throw an unexpected and very human, light on authors too Often enshrined'. Quite funny, very interesting. I also bought The Faber Book of Modern Verse, which includes a lot of the modernists, as well as the OUP Very Short Introduction to Biography, by leader in the field, Hermione Lee.
