Suggested by Simon Thomas:
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?
Honestly, I haven't read very many biographies on authors at all so I guess my answer to this question will be short and sweet. The only person that I can recall that I read their book BECAUSE of reading something about them was Daniel Tammet. I watched some show that he was on and thought from the interview that he sounded interesting. I grabbed the book, Born On A Blue Day: Inside the Extraordinary Mind of an Autistic Savant, from my library and read it in two days. I thought his biography fantastic and so very interesting. His mind and how he perceives things still boggles me to this day. So I guess reading his biography made me love him just a little bit more and I would certainly read another book that he wrote.
