This week the discussion is the following ------ Have you ever been put off an author’s books after reading a biography of them? Or the reverse - a biography has made you love an author more? Courtesy of Simon Thomas
I don't normally read biographies , but I always read the paragraph or two which is inside the back sleeve of a book. I can't say that these lines influence me greatly. However, if I find an author that lives close by, such as Anne Fine or Patricia Fawcett(she has moved now) I like to sample their prose. The story is more important than the author to me.
