Read full description of the books:



This is a first class biography of an amazing and complicated man. If a biographer idolises the subject of his biography then the result can end up being flawed, where the biographer glosses over the subject's negatives or explains them away. But Morton N. Cohen doesn't look to do that. He's clearly a a fan but he doesn't look to ignore the controversies of his personality. He explains things and generally leaves it to the reader to decide what to do with the information.

I found the biography to be highly readable, and while subject material is largely linear, it's not purely so. It does, of course start with the start of his life and finish with the end, but interspersed throughout are occasional chapters that will actually cover his entire life, such as "The man's father" which looks at Charles' relationship with his father throughout his life, and "The man's faith" which looks at Charles' religious beliefs. Other chapters also jump backward and forward through time a bit, but not so much that you loose track of things. I understand why the author did this: he wanted to emphasise things that were important, rather than simply spread them throughout the entire book where vital nuggets of insight might easily become lost. Still, I can see where this approach might bother some. It didn't bother me, though. I enjoyed it from start to finish.

If you're a fan of the "Alice" books (and how could you not be!) then this biography gives a terrific insight into a very complicated, and ultimately, lonely man.
