Link: The best biographies of 2015 | Books | The Guardian

The Guardian has a fine trans-Atlantic review of the year’s best biographies, capturing some of the diversity of life-writing in 2015. Not an Australian in sight, but I suppose that’s understandable given the limits of how much one poor reviewer can read in a year. The Young Eliot is on my shortlist to read; T.S. Eliot and Prichard do not overlap in any significant way but are contemporaries and I also want to do some more thinking about the partial biography that tells only of a subject’s early life.
