The Task of the Biographer

Fred Kaplan shares his thoughts about what it is to be a biographer. “They record the arc of a life. But they try to give it form and shape, the way we all as individuals try to give form and shape to our lives.” Courtesy of Open Road Integrated Media
A personal favorite of Kaplan’s books is his recently published Lincoln: The Biography of a Writer.
