Richard Holmes

Sidetracks

Hay Festival 2000, 
Holmes, author of the great two-volume Coleridge, Shelly: The Pursuit, and the groundbreaking Footsteps, launches his new work Sidetracks by raising questions about the speculative borderlands of biography in characteristically playful fashion. 'We are living in a golden age of biography, and Richard Holmes is one of its luminaries.' (Doris Lessing)
