David Margolick at Boston Book Festival: The Writing Life: Literary Biography
October 19, 2013 @ 1:45 pm - 2:45 pm
Three towering talents are considered in this session. Rose Styron, editor of Selected Letters of William Styron, shares the inner William Styron through letters to his friends, the twentieth century’s intellectual elite. J. Michael Lennon introduces his Norman Mailer: A Double Life, the authorized bio of the tempestuous and brilliant writer, while David Margolick tells of a tormented author whose early success did not save him from self-destruction in Dreadful: The Short Life and Gay Times of John Horne Burns. Moderated by literary agent and entertainment lawyer John Taylor (Ike) Williams.
