Two biographers at the top of their game talk about the art of biography: is it a form of entertainment or elucidation? Is the promise of dirty linen part of the overall tang of biography as a slightly illegitimate art? Or is biography the new non-fiction novel?

Readers, critics and publishers alike love biography, which demand of the biographer years of research and a love for the subject. Hermione Lee (“Edith Wharton”) and Simon Montefiore (“Young Stalin”) talk with Kipling biographer Harry Ricketts (“The Unforgiving Minute”).
