I was most curious about the creative process, the relation between authors' lives and their art, the public image and the real self."" "Meyers himself becomes the ninth writer encountered in Privileged Moments, displaying the master biographer's sharp eye for telling details. In lively and compelling style, he offers us insights in the writers' lives: their reactions to criticism; how they advanced their careers and achieved fame; how feuds and quarrels started and ended; their struggles with money, illness, marriages, and love affairs."--BOOK JACKET."
