Novel Insights

But surely ego then comes into it quite significantly...?

I think it depends on many things. One of which is subject matter. For example, I think I'd rather read a biography of Sarah Palin over her autobiography. (Not that I'd really care to read either.) But given her penchant for embellishing her role and impact, I imagine her version may actually be more fiction... ;)

I just read The Last Lion and am now reading True Compass so I may have more to add after I finish.

Yes, there is ego, but I can usually see past or ignore it.

Good point CW, for politicians it would depend on a lot of factors. I'm not sure I could stomach a Palin biography no matter who wrote it. ;-)

I don't read many entertainment industry biographies or autobiographies. My post is here.
