    Review quote
    "In these pages--which Burton began when he was fourteen and continued until the year before his death--he strips away the larger-than-life abstraction that he became for the public to reveal a human dimension more complex than any biographer could ever hope to capture. He is sensitive, intelligent, literary, outwardly and inwardly curious, tender, sometimes boorish and spiteful but conscious of fair play, wickedly discerning and funny, surprisingly modest, wildly generous, a delightful gossip, and virtually never boring--something that would have frightened and appalled him."--Mary Hawthorne, "The New Yorker"'s "Page-Turner" blog--Mary Hawthorne "The New Yorker's "Page-Turner" blog "
