Writing Biography and Autobiography

March 26, 2008

I had written three book-length biographies and decided that I should put all that hard-earned experience to good use and so I persuaded A&C Black to add this title to their “Writing Handbooks” series. My thought was that we are all interested in people and many of us have wanted to write a life-story but have been unsure how to set about it or how to bring such a project to a satisfactory end. My book is, I hope, a practical and helpful introduction to writing biography and autobiography and looks at the various forms that such a project might take.

 

The historian and biographer Antonia Woodville was recently kind enough to comment in her blog:  “The book “Writing Biography and Autobiography” by Brian D Osborne has arrived. It’s a highly readable, interesting handbook.”
