"The secret of biography resides in finding the link between talent and achievement. A biography seems irrelevant if it doesn’t discover the overlap between what the individual did and the life that made this possible. Without discovering that, you have shapeless happenings and gossip."
Leon Edel, U.S. biographer, critic. Interview in Writers at Work, Eighth Series
