Ten top literary biographies

Jay Parini, author of Every Time a Friend Succeeds Something Inside Me Dies: The Life of Gore Vidal, tagged his top ten literary biographies for the Guardian. One title on the list:
Tolstoy by A N Wilson (1989)

Wilson writes so well, and he brings a blazing critical intelligence to bear as well as novelistic skills in assembling a great life of a great writer. I love this book.
