Biography Books & True Stories
It is human nature to be fascinated by other people and the very best memoirs and biographies draw readers into lives either truly unique or eminently relatable. Classic autobiographies like Cider With Rosie or I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings evoke both their author’s inner lives and a specific time and place, whilst others shed light on complex public figures - or provide plenty of juicy gossip. This is the place to find great books on the good, the bad and the fascinating.
